Pell De Brau by Espriu


Pell De Brau by Espriu

La pell de brau has been called the most important book to appear in Spain in the 1960s. Grappling with themes of national, racial, and cultural identity, its frankness exhilarated and inspired the younger generation of artists to speak out on social and political issues. The Oxford Companion to Spanish Literature said of Burton Raffel's translation: He has created an Espriu equally valid in English, a monument to a Catalan writer of world stature.

It's a lively, independent website with reviews, recommendations and more - with a huge range of books available to buy in all formats.

Alison Layland

I read new, exciting writers and established authors before publication and there is a great website full of brilliant books and opinions.


I recommend Lovereading because you get honest reviews on a whole range of genres-there's something for everyone. It's the only site I need.

Sian Spinney

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

Jen Rainbow

Because of Lovereading I have broadened my reading horizons with some really great books that I probably would never have chosen myself.

Susan Walsh

Love Reading - it not only does what it says on the tin, it does it with Jam on!!

Maz Tucker

I love Lovereading for the wonderful like for like author recommendations and for highlighting new books, it's a great resource for readers!


I love reading books I wouldn't normally choose before everyone else gets to read them!
