Camilo José Cela
Winner of the 1989 Nobel Prize in Literature
Translated by Frances M. López-Morillas


Travels on foot through the Spanish countryside

"A sensitive portrayal of provincial Spain, its physical nature, and the psychology and values of its people. It must be said at the outset that Mrs. López-Morillas' rendition is exemplary . . . a veritable marvel of fidelity to the Spanish text in both letter and spirit."The Modern Language Journal

"There will be no need of another English translation so long as this splendid one remains available. Its general excellence could scarely be bettered."Bulletin of Hispanic Studies

Camilo José Cela was born in Iria-Flavia, a tiny village in the province of La Corña (Galicia), in 1916. He is recognized as a leader in the renaissance of the Spanish novel after the Civil War. In awarding him the 1989 Nobel Prize in Literature, the Swedish Academy said that his first novel, The Family of Pascual Duarte, published in 1942, was the most popular work of fiction in Spanish since Miguel Cervantes' masterpiece Don Quixote was published nearly 400 years ago.
