Review: Primera Memoria (Los mercaderes #1)

User Review  - Emusam - Goodreads

A little girl's first-person narrative of life on one of the Spanish islands during the Civil War. She is powerless in many ways, which especially evident at the end. There are very few men that don't go off to war, and those that remain are less-than-ideal. Quite a novel. Read full review

About the author (1996)

One of Spain's foremost novelists and short story writers of the post-civil war period, Matute is particularly renowned for her loving but unsentimental stories about children and adolescents. Marked by existential anguish and poignant lyricism, these stories often focus on traumatic experiences, which lead to a child's sudden awakening to the sordid, cruel, and hypocritical adult world.
