"Elsinore: Un cuaderno" is a novel based on the years Salvador Elizondo spent at the Naval and Military School in Elsinore, California, during the post-war period in the United States. Experience and memory converge in this work, which also documents a young savior's passage to adulthood, and portrays a world of contrasts between the English and Spanish, Mexicans and Americans, cadets and braceros, and the city and boarding school. Published for the first time in 1988, this edition celebrates its thirtieth anniversary with illustrations by Nuria Meléndez Gámez, a presentation by Paulina Lavista, and a prologue by Daniel Saldaña París, as well as a booklet containing photographs and notes from Elizondo's childhood and adolescence.
