Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: In the rough hill country of rural Catalonia, the Spanish Civil War is over and the villagers live under occupation by the fascist Civil Guard. With his father in jail, facing possible execution as a subversive, and his mother working long hours in a factory, eleven-year-old Andreu is sent to live with his relatives. His inquisitive, self-taught grandmother encourages him to study, but who will Andreu become? He doesn't want to be a farmhand, or work in a factory, or flee into exile like his uncle and aunt. His cousin Nuria invites him to play sex games in the woods, but Andreu can't stop thinking about a young man he sees lying naked in a monastery garden. One of the major novels of contemporary Spain, and the inspiration for the first film in the Catalan language to be nominated by Spain for an Academy Award, Black Bread brings to life a rural world of mythical force as it traces with piercing psychological insight, in gorgeous prose, a boy's psyche as he moves from youth into adulthood.
Subject: Catalan fiction > 21st century.
