Prudencio de Pereda (1912-1973) was an American author of Spanish origins. In 1960 he wrote the novel Windmills in Brooklyn which was favourably reviewed in the States but received little notice in Spain. In 2015, 55 years later, the book has been translated into Spanish and can be read by readers here. It is largely autobiographic and describes the daily life of the small Spanish community in the Brooklyn of the late 1920s and early 1930s.
“Windmills in Brooklyn was the first title of the publishing house Atheneum, the cover picture was by Richard Avedon, and the design by Milton Glaser, the creator of the “I love NY” logo…” (Gregorio Morán, La Vanguardia)
