Realms of Strife: Memoirs, 1957-1982

by Goytisolo

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
A candidate for the title of Spain's greatest living writer, Goytisolo continues the account of his life begun in Forbidden Territory ( LJ 11/15/88). His prose, often quite allusive, brings to life the literary history of Europe in the Fifties and Sixties. We meet luminaries such as Sartre, Garcia Marquez, Duras, and even Fidel Castro. Fascinating though these remembrances are, readers of Goytisolo's fiction will be most interested in his ongoing development as a writer, and here he reveals many important influences. A chapter on Genet is worth the price of the book. A necessary addition to all special collections.-- Vincent D. Balitas, Allentown Coll., Center Valley, Pa.
