. . an almost voluptuous vulnerability. Natasha Wimmer, The NationIt is a total mystery to me why [Rodoreda] isnt widely worshipped- along with Willa Cather, shes on my list of authors whose works I intend to have read all of before I die. Tremendous, tremendous writer. John Darnielle, The Mountain GoatsDespite 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 Rodoredas Death in Spring, nature and death play an fundamental role in a narrative that often takes on a phantasmagoric quality and seems to be a meditation on the consequences of moral degradation and the inescapable presence of evil.Merce Rodoreda (1908 1983) is widely regarded as the most important Catalan writer of the twentieth century.

Exiled in France and Switzerland following the Spanish Civil War, Rodoreda began writing the novels and short stories Twenty-Two Short Stories, The Time of the Doves, Camellia Street, Garden by the Sea that would eventually make her internationally famous.
