War, so much war by Mercè Rodoreda( Book )

26 editions published between 1980 and 2015 in 6 languages and held by 222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Despite its title, there is little of war and much of the fantastic in this coming-of-age story, which was the last novel Mercè Rodoreda published during her lifetime. We first meet its young protagonist, Adrià Guinart, as he is leaving Barcelona out of boredom and a thirst for freedom, embarking on a long journey through the backwaters of a rural land, accompanied by the interminable, distant rumblings of an indefinable war. In vignette-like chapters and a narrative style imbued with the fantastic, Guinart meets with numerous adventures and peculiar characters who offer him a surrealistic view of an impoverished, war-ravaged society and shape his perception of his place in the world"--Page 4 of cover

"Aquest llibre aplega, definitivament en un llibre, tots els contes que Mercè Rodoreda va publicar. En primer lloc, els Vint-i-dos contes (1958) que van protagonitzar el seu retorn literari a la recerca de nous lectors, després de la guerra. En segon lloc, La meva Cristina i altres contes (1967), un compendi amb el més fascinador i punyent del món literari de l'autora. Després, Semblava de seda i altres contes (1978), que conté algunes peces mestres de maduresa al costat d'altres que resumeixen llargues dècades de dedicació al gènere. I, finalment, Viatges i flors (1980), un recull d'una força lírica extraordinària que abasta, en les seves dues parts, tot l'arc de la plenitud creativa rodorediana."--Back cover
