Description

In Mexico City, an old woman entices a young, street-smart taxi driver to be her chauffeur.

Her vehicle is a cherry 1942 Ford, a classic ride. Together they circle through the city which, as time passes, becomes the city of the old woman's youth: the 40's and 50's.

Modelo Antiguo is a novel of love, a love which is both enigmatic and terrible, and at times very touching.

Translated by Joe Hayes and Sharon Franco.

2 reviews for Modelo Antiguo

  1. Library Journal
    A hugely entertaining love story that circumvents time and place and culture. Reyes is well-known in his native Mexico. This fast-moving novel, his first to be published in English, is a welcome addition to all literary collections.

  2. Kirkus Reviews
    Reyes makes it all work in a deft tale that’s part character study, part comic nightmare, and altogether engrossing and satisfying.
