Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Explore Spain's rich literary landscape with some of the country's best contemporary writers. Arranged geographically, these 18 stories-many of which appear in English for the first time-transport the reader through Spain's many enchanting regions: Experience the diversity of Juan Goytisolo's Almeria, join Berardo Atxaga in a Basque village, travel to the fjords of Galicia with Manuel Rivas, and revisit Julio Llamazares's Leon-a village now under the waters of a reservoir.

Peter Bush is Director of the British Centre for Literary Translation at the University of East Anglia. He edited The Voice of the Turtle, an anthology of Cuban Stories (Grove), and has translated numerous Spanish novels.

Lisa Dillman has translated biography, art history, and pedagogy in addition to Spanish, Catalan, Cuban, and Argentinian fiction.
