"This is an excellent and welcome book, written with care by a diverse group of scholars. The inclusion of Carmen Martín Gaíte's only autobiography brings the reader closer to the author's voice. Readers will find many innovative teaching techniques and activities to enhance the learning experience for students; the reviews of Martin Gaíte's works and of the critical studies on her will broaden the professor's understanding, and the time line of Spanish history is thorough and helpful."
-Catherine G. Bellver, University Nevada, Las Vegas
"Carmen Martín Gaite is one of the most important Spanish writers of the twentieth century. The diversity and complexity of her work, which includes fiction, essays, children's literature, poetry, and drama, call for a road map, and this volume definitely provides one."
--Nuria Cruz-Cámara, University of Tennessee
