Barcelona is one of the most visited cities in Europe; a multilingual capital of an autonomous region that longs to be independent of Spain. The city is famous for its painters; modernist architecture; style of football; and its history; but as Peter Bush reveals it has always been a major centre of literary talent and creativity. Barcelona Tales presents a selection of newly translated short stories by 14 writers; many of them Catalan. The stories explore the themes of migration and class conflict in a city renowned in world literature from the day rural innocents Don Quixote and Sancho Panza visited its streets at the beginning of the seventeenth-century; and witnessed the wonders of the printing press and the cruelties of slavery. Together; they open up the city in ironic; tragic; and lyrical ways; inviting readers to explore fictional lives and literary styles that reflect the dynamic; conflict-ridden character and history of this great European city.
