Publisher: Archipelago Books
Published: 5th Mar '20
An intimate portrait of childhood during Spain’s violent fascist regime, rendered in a surreal kaleidoscope of linked stories.
Serge Pey’s stories are lyrical, vivid vignettes of life during and directly following Spain’s violent fascist regime of the thirties and forties. The collection is a defiant ode to the resilience of the human spirit, each story depicting a small act of human resistance. Many of the stories are surreal, fable-like impressions from the perspective of children caught in the midst of political violence. Pey’s understated prose renders a brutal landscape with childlike wonder. It is a strikingly original meditation on courage, survival, and hope in the face of oppression.
