Vicente Blasco Ibáñez
(1867–1928), Spainish. Writer


The title is my own. the "and Other Stories" was not part of the download, but I decided to add those extra words since the book is indeed comprised of a number of short stories in addition to the title story.

I do know about this author, having years ago read "The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse," but that was so long ago that I recall very little of the book. That book made him famous outside his own country, and also apparently quite wealthy.

I put this together in order to induce me to read - as a now more "mature" reader - some of his other work.

A quote:

"His novels are primarily realistic in conception. The early ones, set in Valencia, include Flor de mayo (1895, tr. The Mayflower, 1921), La barraca [The Cabin] (1898), Cañas y barro (1902, tr. Reeds and Mud, 1928), and La catedral (1903, tr. The Shadow of the Cathedral, 1909). He traveled in South America, returning to Spain at the outbreak of World War I. He became a propagandist for the Allies, and his war novel, Los cuatro jinetes del Apocalipsis (1916, tr. The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, 1918), made him world famous. He died a voluntary political exile."

I hope you enjoy it, and if so let the rest of know what you think about this book.
