    This novel has been a huge success in Spain recently From September 2016 to July 2017, that is ten months after it was first published, it has run through twenty editions Several of my friends have read or are reading it and a few recommended it to me Generally I am not much drawn to bestsellers and this one was no exception But I received it recently as a present from a family member, so I decided to face my prejudices.The novel deals with two Basque families from around the 1980s to the re Thi [...]

    Da tempo non leggevo un libro che mi teneva incollata alle pagine come questo.E che mi mandava su e gi con una giostra di pensieri avanti e indietro nel tempo.Aramburu dipinge personaggi che potrebbero essere i miei vicini di casa, e li trasforma in eroi epici all interno come sono della Storia, quella dei Paesi Baschi, coi loro morti per una guerra nazionalistica che a distanza di anni ci sembra anacronistica, proprio mentre i nazionalismi in tutta Europa stanno rialzando la testa Due donne n D [...]
