Spain’s Great Untranslated

Spain's Great Untranslated presents twelve contemporary Spanish masters whose dazzling work has been unavailable to the English-language world. Exploring scenes ranging from the devastating Madrid subway bombing to the idyllic coastline of Greece, in rhapsodic poetry and anguished prose, these writers demonstrate the breadth and depth of the country's literary scene. Edited by Javier Aparicio, Aurelio Major, and Mercedes Monmany, these new English translations of great Spanish poetry, fiction, and memoirs provide an unrivaled view of Spanish writing today.
