Memoirs Of A Bullfighter

Memoirs Of A Bullfighter, the autobiography of pioneer torera and rejoneadora, Conchita Cintron, is long out of print, but remains an excellent find if you can locate a  copy.

Aside from her own experience with the novillos, she likewise deals with encounters with Marcial Lalanda, Jesus Solórzano, Calesero, Juan Belmonte and many others.

The book also deals in alarming detail wish her eyewitness accounts to the deaths of Alberto Balderas and Juan Gallo.

There are a number of outstanding photos within the text as well.

This is one of two books about Cintron,  for her mother wrote a book also about her titled Goddess Of The Bullring.
