Cry, Mother Spain

Lydie Salvayre, translated by Ben Faccini
Cry, Mother Spain

Intelligent and very readable tale about the author’s Spanish mother, a heady summer in Anarchist Lérida and its consequences, with a secondary theme of revolutionary disaffection and much reference to Georges Bernanos’s Civil War experiences in Mallorca. Winner of the Prix Goncourt in 2014.

Edition: Hardback MacLehose Press
