_It all happened because of Elvis Presley.”

Bad Nature, or with Elvis in Mexico

Fiction by Javier Marías

Translated from the Spanish by Esther Allen

A boiled-down gem of a Marías story about how Elvis (in Acapulco to film a movie) and his hard-drinking entourage abandon their interpreter in a seedy cantina full of enraged criminals after insults start to fly. When the local kingpin demands to be told what the Americans are saying, Elvis himself delivers an even more stinging parting shot – and who has to translate that?
