Product Description

Man against beast. Dancing ladies with castanets. A dangerous dance that captivates and terrifies everyone in the bull ring. Celipe and Relojerin came to Iloilo to slay and pierce the bulls through their hearts but are now also determined to sway Manolita and Lilia off their feet. Two formidable bullfighters from Manila shake the whole ring only to find themselves in an unusual predicament as they are caught in a whirl of passion, romance, and jealousy. When fate is no longer in their hands but in the warm sea breeze, clicking of castanets, and sharp horns of ahefty bull, will love be their saving grace or the cause of their demise? Colorized and restored from the personal collection of award-winning author Guillermo GOmez Rivera, illustrated by Ramon Fernandez Pasion, Vibal Foundation, Inc. proudly presents a tale of an almost-forgotten time in the Philippines – a time when bullfighters are as fatal to a man as a woman’s fury.
