Martín Abrisketa

Martín Abrisketa (Bilbao, 1967) is a journalist, scriptwriter and photojournalist. In 2015 he made the leap to literature with the successful La lengua de los secretos, a novel in which recounts the adventures of a mischievous boy, his own father, who experienced the Spanish Civil War as if it were a game. In addition to being a commercial success, it received unanimous praise from critics. In this second novel, The Hidden Country, the author delves further into the fantasy of that childish perspective, this time focusing on the leaden years of the Basque Country.
