About this title
"This luxurious translation of a Spanish tour de force, about the return of an exile to his native Barcelona after the Spanish Civil War, should captivate those who prize the elegant lyricism and complexity of Latin American fiction"—Publishers Weekly
Marks of Identity is the first volume of Goytisolo’s great trilogy which includes Count Julian and Juan the Landless. It is an affirmation of the ability of the individual to survive the political tyrannies of our times.About the Author:
Born in Barcelona in 1931, Juan Goytisolo is Spain's greatest living writer. A bitter opponent of the Franco regime, his early novels were banned in Spain. In 1956 he moved to Paris. Since then he has written extensively on the city as melting-pot, the expulsion of the Moors from Europe and the art of reading. In 2004 Goytisolo was awarded the Juan Rulfo International Latin American and Caribbean Prize for Literature, and in 2014 he won the prestigious Cervantes Prize in recognition of his life's work. He lived in Morocco until his death in 2017.
