Després de la Segona Guerra Mundial, derrotat el feixisme, un nazi fugitiu es va amagar a la inaccessible Siurana, la vila del Priorat, on es va fer construir un xalet immens i va viure protegit pel franquisme i per uns gossos ferotges. Tothom coneixia l’amagatall com el xalet del nazi o el xalet del belga, perquè el suposat nazi era belga d’origen. O això explica la llegenda del nazi de Siurana. Què hi ha de veritat darrere de la llegenda? És possible que aquest veí de Siurana que va morir l’any 2002, quan tenia vuitantanou anys, reconegut, aplaudit i homenatjat pels seus mèrits muntanyencs, fos ofcial d’un cos d’elit de les SS i una peça clau de l’ocupació nazi de Bèlgica? I quin paper hi va jugar la seva dona, Anita Salden, en aquesta història? En un exercici de periodisme d’investigació de primer ordre, Toni Orensanz s’endinsa en els horrors més obscurs del segle XX, aquells que van revelar la veritable essència del mal. Una història apassionant sobre nazis a Espanya, memòria històrica, fugues sonades i pactes de silenci. La veritat darrere la llegenda del nazi de Siurana

The Catalan modern classic, first published in 1985, now in its 50th edition, for the first time in English. The beginning of the 20th century: 13-year-old Conxa leaves her home village in the Pyrenees to work for her childless aunt. After years of hardship she finds love with Jaume - a love that will be thwarted by the Spanish Civil War. Approaching her own death, Conxa looks back on a life in which she has lost everything except her own indomitable spirit. Why Peirene chose to publish this book: ‘I fell in love with Conxa's narrative voice, its stoic calmness and the complete lack of anger and bitterness. It's a timeless voice, down to earth and full of human contradictory nuances. It's the expression of someone who searches for understanding in a changing world but senses that ultimately there may be no such thing.’ Meike Ziervogel ‘Sparse and haunting.’ Katy Guest, Independent ‘The compression is so deft, the young narrator's voice so strong, so particular, her straightforward evocation of the hard labour and rare pleasures of mountain life . . . so vibrant, that it makes me want to take scissors to everything else I read.’ Richard Lea, Guardian ‘A Pyrenean life told in a quietly effective voice.’ Daniel Hahn, Independent ‘There is an understated power in Barbal’s depiction of how the forces of history can shape the life of the powerless.’ Adrian Turpin, Financial Times ‘A masterpiece of world literature and a shining example of the virtuosity of elegant and concise prose.’ Pam Norfolk, Lancashire Evening Post ‘Air-tight believability.’ Matthew Tree, Times Literary Supplement ​ INDEPENDENT BOOKS OF THE YEAR 2010 FOYLES BOOKS OF THE YEAR 2010

The first part of the book, which begins on March 8, 1918, is a story of family life on the Costa Brava and the coming-of-age story of a young man torn between an old-fashioned ideal of a life of quiet dedication to work and family and the intellectual seductions of European culture. Pla's enthusiasms and uncertainties, friendships and crushes, his reading, the drama and politics and absurdity of family life-we are drawn into all these as we also follow Pla in his wanderings through town, scrutinizing his fellow citizens, or out under the magnificent skies of the still-unspoiled countryside of the coast. In January 1919, Pla returns to Barcelona to complete his studies, and the book's second part paints a hilariously revealing picture of student life. He learns next to nothing from his teachers, a good deal more from the writers and artists he meets in cafés and salons, and most of all from Barcelona itself, with its night life and ramblas, the city of Gaudi and Modernisme, where just outside the city limits the seemingly timeless life of the country still went on as before.

From the moment that Jimbo and his best friend Charlie bug the staff room and overhear two of their teachers speaking to each other in a secret language, they know that nothing is as it seems. But what does "spudvetch" mean, and why do Mr. Kidd's eyes flicker with fluroscent blue light when Charlie says it to him? Perhaps the teachers are bank robbers speaking in code; perhaps they're spies, or aliens. Whatever they are, Jimbo and Charlie know that there is a big adventure on its way: a nuclear-powered, one-hundred-tonne one, with reclining seats and a buffet car. And as it gains speed and begins to spin out of control, it can only end one way — with a BOOM! From the Hardcover edition.

This is a book about how Catalans use their past, real and imagined, in the construction of their present and future. Michael A. Vargas inventories the significant people, signal events, and familiar icons that constitute the Catalan collective memory, from Wilfred the Hairy and Sant Jordi to the mountain monastery of Montserrat, red peasant caps, and human towers in town squares. He then considers how that inventory is employed to posit a brilliant political heritage at the forefront of modern European democracy—and for some, to build a powerful independence movement. As the future of Catalonia remains fraught, this book offers a lively and engaging exploration of how we draw upon history to confront contemporary challenges.
