An amazing portrait of a man of ideas and a vivid chronicle of the Madrid of the II Republic that preceded the Spanish Civil War.
Josefina Carabias left us a book that is much more than a portrait of a man of ideas who stumbled upon the bitter reality of Spain. It is also a vivid chronicle of the Madrid of a unique era, with its cafe gatherings and women’s suffrage, through which characters such as Unamuno and Valle-Inclán pass. And it is, above all, definitive confirmation of Carabias as a pioneer of Spanish journalism, a vibrant literary exercise that does not renounce veracity, on par with such figures as Chaves Nogales.
A portrait of one of the most significant figures of the II Republic, written by the privileged pen of a pioneer of journalism.
