Book launch: Wolf Moon by Julio Llamazares
26 Apr 2017 6:30 pm - 8:25 pm|
The conversation about ‘The Spanish Civil War: from Resistance to Inspiration’ will take place at Conway Hall with the presence of the author and the translators of the book, Simon Deefholts and Kathryn Phillips-Milles.
Wolf Moon was the first novel that centered on the Spanish Maquis to be published in Spain after Franco’s death in 1975. Defeated by Franco’s Nationalists, four Republican fugitives flee into the Cantabrian mountains at the end of the Spanish Civil War. They are on the run, skirmishing with the Guardia Civil, knowing that surrender means death. Llamazares’s lyrical prose vividly animates the wilderness, making the Spanish landscape as much a witness to the oppression of the Franco regime as the persecuted republicans.
