FROM THE PUBLISHER - A plane lands in Rome in August 1953 carrying the dead, dying or battered victims of an African rebel massacre. Among them is a thirty-year-old Spanish nun, Sister Luz del Amor Hermoso, dressed in civilian clothes and obviously pregnant. At the nearby convent, she is subjected to close questioning by the Mother Superior, during which her extraordinary story unfolds - her childhood in Granada, dominated by her alcoholic and adulterous father, an officer-hero of the fascist army in the Spanish Civil War; a man obsessed by the idea of his own death, who remembers the slaying of his mistress, a gipsy whore. It is this act which impels him to confront the event which is the core of his overwhelming feeling of guilt - his murder of the poet Federico Garcia Lorca, ‘the honour of Spain’, in 1936, and of whose fame he was unaware at the time. As the interrogation continues, Sister Luz is forced to recall what happened to her in Africa - her arrival and life at the mission; its destruction by the rebels, whose chief takes her as his mistress; her ambivalence towards her subsequent violation by him; and her flight to Rome. Here she is unwilling to accept a world of bloodshed and violence, and her final act is one of defiance, to protect her unborn child. Very Good In Slightly Worn Dustjacket With A Few Tears.
