Inhaltsangabe: Merce Rodoreda's final novel is a meditation on the consequences of moral degradation and the inescapable presence of evil. Despite its title, there is little of war and much of the fantastic in this coming-of-age story, which was the last novel Merce Rodoreda published during her lifetime. We first meet its young protagonist, Adria Guinart, as he is leaving Barcelona out of boredom and a thirst for freedom, embarking on a long journey through the backwaters of a rural land that one can only suppose is Catalonia, accompanied by the interminable, distant rumblings of an indefinable war. In vignette-like chapters and with a narrative style imbued with the fantastic, Guinart meets with numerous adventures and peculiar characters who offer him a composite, if surrealistic, view of an impoverished, war-ravaged society and shape his perception of his place in the world. As in Rodoreda's Death in Spring (Open Letter, 2015), nature and death play a fundamental role in a narrative that often takes on a phantasmagorical quality and seems to be a meditation on the consequences of moral degradation and the inescapable presence of evil.

Reseña del editor: Featured on Jeff VanderMeer's "Epic List of Favorite Books Read in 2015"

"Rodoreda had bedazzled me by the sensuality with which she reveals things within the atmosphere of her novels."Gabriel Garcia Marquez

"Rodoreda plumbs a sadness that reaches beyond historic circumstances . . . an almost voluptuous vulnerability."Natasha Wimmer, "The Nation"

"It is a total mystery to me why [Rodoreda] isn't widely worshipped; along with Willa Cather, she's on my list of authors whose works I intend to have read all of before I die. Tremendous, tremendous writer."John Darnielle, The Mountain Goats
