As compulsively page-turning as a thriller, Carmen Martin Gaite's drama of broken dreams, lies, and the search for love is an intense meditation on the strange adventure of living

About the Author

Carmen Martin Gaite (1925 - 2000) was one of Spain's most distinguished novelists; in 1978, she was awarded the Spanish National Prize for Literature. Her novels Variable Cloud and The Fallen Angel were also published by Harvill.


Idiosyncratic, wilful, cute, a choppy blur of emotion and erudition, cocky, confrontational conversation and fragmented urban commentary, it starts off resembling something by Russell Hoban or Josephine Saxton - or even Janet Frame
*The Guardian*

Carmen Martin Gaite writes evocatively and gracefully, and has some intriguing things to say about story-telling, and about the prisons we create for ourselves
