Fernanda EberstadtLaforet died in 2004, having published five more novels and a book of short stories. The seedy, lugubrious Barcelona she evoked in “Nada” is now vanished, given way to a chic metropolis famed for its avant-garde chefs and bijou bars. But the spirit of sly resistance that Laforet’s novel expresses, its heroine’s determination to escape provincial poverty and to immerse herself in “lights, noises, the entire tide of life,” has lost none of its power of persuasion.
