Merce Rodorede is a Catalan writer who stopped writing for some decdes after the the Falangists took power in Spain and suppressed the Catalan language. She began writing again in the s and has been a major source of inspiration on the reflowering of Catalan culture and language in the last decdes. This book is written with a harsh lyricism that has very few equals among any i have ever read from any part of the world.

No spicy sex scenes, sorry. She is quirky and weird and doesn't really do much of anything but try to find men to take care of her. However the writing is beautiful which always impresses me when it has been translated from the original language. I'd only recommend this to someone who has some interest in Spanish culture.

The Modern Novel
It is therefore probably no surprise that it is out of print in English. It is a profoundly feminist novel, telling the story of a young woman continuously exploited by men. She is taken in by an old couple, Senyor Jaume and Senyora Magdalena. They do not formally register her but do bring her up as their own. She tells of her upbringing in moderately affectionate terms, with Jaume and Magdalena and their two cousins, Maria-Cinta, and Raquel, being kind to her.
