“Guided by the memories, an American veteran of the Spanish Civil War, Sarah -his granddaughter- and Joan listen fascinated to the anecdotes told by the affable Raymond. We enter an emotive story where the epic memory and the war’s scars melt; a deserved homage to the thousands of men and women who defended freedom with their lives. We see a new Jordi Cantavella (Barcelona, 1967), who leaves behind humour and concocts a historical novel that shows solid documentation work.”
