Severed Heads

Original title: Cabezas cortadas

Maria goes abroad seeking to escape mediocrity and boredom. A notebook, a precarious salary and a roof over her head are all she needs. Around her, volunteer brigades hunt down immigrants, night raids take place and there are suburbs where whites don’t enter. Fatalistically drawn to a desire for destruction, she hides in the past and falls into a spiral of lies and self-deception as she turns her memories into pages that can become a weapon to cut off heads.

Severed Heads is a novel about a generation confused and battered by the crisis, and about the anger and bewilderment that come when youth ends and dreams fade

A shocking novel, a ferocious social critique. 

The story of a young Spanish woman who emigrates to London, a generational portrait.
