Raul Salinas y Yo: Desventuras de una Pasion = Raul Salinas and I

Maria Bernal, Author Grupo Oceano $17.95 (203p) ISBN 978-970-651-394-6
Bernal writes an autobiographical account of her tumultuous relationship with Ra l Salinas de Gortari, the older brother of former Mexican president Carlos Salinas, who was convicted of murdering Mexican politician Jose Francisco Ruiz Massieu in 1998. As the mistress of Ra l Salinas, Bernal makes no startling revelations but presents avid descriptions of an elite Mexican lifestyle and brings a soap opera-style perspective to the murder scandal that has engulfed Mexico since 1994. Details about their on-board courtship, the story behind the infamous photo that appeared in the press of Bernal straddling Ra l, and their inevitable separation after his imprisonment fill the book and are the highlights of her tale. Descriptions of the Salinas de Gortari family and other major participants in this political scandal are included. Of interest to readers aware of Mexican politics; recommended for public libraries and booksellers. Harold Bright, New Haven Free P.L., CT
