About The Book
On Thursday, August 38, 1947, in the bull ring at the Spanish town of Linares, a thirty-year-old millionaire called Manolete (Manuel Laureano Rodriguez) and a Miura bull named Islero killed each other. Conrad recounts Manolete’s extraordinary life here for the first time in English.
In combining pictures and text, the reader sees the breeding that made the Spanish boy, the tempering that made the young torero, the sacrifice that made the man, the girl who brought him love, the acclaim that brought him incredible success, and finally its price … the undoing that began slowly and ended in one last great afternoon and in a death that untimely put out the brightest flame in Spain. Manolete had fired the Latin imagination as no one had done since the Cid. He had become a symbol of Latin pride, valor, and chivalry. But the crowds owned him and he did their bidding … and they had bid him to die.
