The fallen by Juan Marsé( Book )

5 editions published between 1979 and 1994 in English and held by 447 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Escrita a finales de los años sesenta, Si te dicen que caí constituye una secreta y nostálgica despedida de la infancia, así como un cuadro a la vez sórdido y poético de la vida cotidiana durante el franquismo. Se trata, además, de una de las obras más personales de su autor. Al escribirla sólo pensaba en los anónimos vecinos de un barrio pobre que ya no existe en Barcelona; en los furiosos muchachos de la posguerra que compartieron con él las calles leprosas y los juegos atroces, el miedo, el hambre y el frío; en su propia infancia y adolescencia

The virtues of the solitary bird by Juan Goytisolo( Book )

5 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 427 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For Goytisolo, great writers are 'solitary birds' whose voice is an enchanting cry that pierces time. On his hospital bed, the persecuted narrator identifies with St John of the Cross, himself forced by the Inquisition to swallow his Treatise on the Qualities of the Solitary Bird. Through a scintillating succession of visions, soliloquies and ecstatic chants he converses with the banished saint. The agencies of repression have changed but, as in the past, a hideous

2 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 423 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The memoirs of Fray Servando Teresa de Mier by José Servando Teresa de Mier Noriega y Guerra( Book )

4 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 412 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On December 12, 1794, Fray Servando preached a sermon in Mexico City claiming that the Indies had been converted by St. Thomas long before the Spaniards arrived. Because the Spanish cited the "conversion of the heathen" as the justification of their conquest of the New World, Servando's words were deemed subversive. As a result, he was arrested by the Inquisition and exiled to Spain - only to escape and spend 10 years traveling throughout Europe, as none other than a French priest." "So began the grand adventure of Fray Servando's life, and of this gripping memoir. Here is an invitation hard for any reader to resist: a glimpse of the European "Age of Enlightenment" through the eyes of a fugitive Mexican friar. Fray Servando's account of Europe is clear-sighted, hilarious and certainly not included in the travel literature of that era. In this memoir, one sees a portrait of manners and morals that is a far cry from the 'civilized' spirit that the Empire wanted to impose on its Colonies. This book takes a look at history from an upside-down perspective, asking this question: who were the real savages, the colonizers themselves, or the supposed "savages" they were struggling to convert?"--Jacket

As head of the National Library in Lima, Palma had access to a rich source of historical books and manuscripts.

The storyteller by Mario Vargas Llosa( Book )

10 editions published between 1989 and 2001 in English and held by 242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Publisher: At a small gallery in Florence, a Peruvian writer happens upon a photograph of a tribal storyteller deep in the jungles of the Amazon. He is overcome with the eerie sense that he knows this man-that the storyteller is not an Indian at all but an old school friend, Saul Zuratas. As recollections of Zuratas flow through his mind, the writer begins to imagine Zuratas's transformation from a modern to a central member of the unacculturated Machiguenga tribe. Weaving the mysteries of identity, storytelling, and truth, Vargas Llosa has created a spellbinding tale of one man's journey from the modern world to our origins, abandoning one in order to find meaning in both
