Description

This book analyzes how several contemporary Spanish writers (Francisco Umbral, Manual Vasquez Montalban, Manuel Vicent, and Felix de Azua) view Span's transition to democracy in their novels. These authors and their texts offer alternative narratives of the transition that disrupt and contradict the complacent and monological version elaborated by post-Francoist historiography.
