Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"This luxurious translation of a Spanish tour de force, about the return of an exile to his native Barcelona after the Spanish Civil War, should captivate those who prize the elegant lyricism and complexity of Latin American fiction"—Publishers Weekly

Marks of Identity is the first volume of Goytisolo’s great trilogy which includes Count Julian and Juan the Landless. It is an affirmation of the ability of the individual to survive the political tyrannies of our times.

Synopsis:

A Spanish exile returns from Paris to his family home in Barcelona. Wandering round the city, he comes to the conclusion that every man carries his own exile about with him, wherever he lives. Marks of Identity is an affirmation of the ability of the individual to survive the political tyrannies of the last century and the current one.

Synopsis:

This title offers a revealing autobiographical reflection on exile. Goytisolo comes to the conclusion that every man carries his own exile about with him, wherever he lives. The narrator (Goytisolo) rejects Spain itself and searches instead for poetry "the word without history".

Synopsis:

New edition of first volume of Goytisolo's great trilogy.

About the Author

Born in Barcelona in 1931, Juan Goytisolo is Spain's greatest living writer. A bitter opponent of the Franco regime, his early novels were banned in Spain. In 1956 he moved to Paris. Since then he has written extensively on the city as melting-pot, the expulsion of the Moors from Europe and the art of reading.
