Description - The Mangy Parrot by Jose Joaquin Fernandez de Lizardi

Though never before published in its entirety in English, The Mangy Parrot (El Periquillo Sarniento) has become a Mexican classic beloved by generations of Latin American readers. Now, in vibrant American idiom, translator David Frye captures the exuberance of Lizardi's tale-telling as the author follows his narrator and alter ego, Periquillo Sarniento, through a series of misadventures that exposes the ignorance and corruption plaguing Mexican society on the eve of the wars for independence.
