Translated by Mara Faye Lethem
When Domenec – mountain-dweller, father, poet, dreamer – dies suddenly, struck by lightning, he leaves behind two small children, Mia and Hilari, to grow up wild among the looming summits of the Pyrenees and the ghosts of the Spanish civil war. But then Hilari dies too, and his sister is forced to face life's struggles and joys alone. As the years tumble by, the inhabitants of the mountain - human, animal and other - come together in a chorus of voices to bear witness to the sorrows of one family, and to the savage beauty of the landscape.
This remarkable English-language debut is lyrical, mythical, elemental, and ferociously imaginative.
‘This book made me swoon: a fable that is utterly universal, deadly funny and profoundly moving’ Max Porter
‘There’s so much beauty in this wonderful polyphonic novel ... Timeless and unique’ Mariana Enriquez
