Synopsis

One sultry summer night in the Spanish countryside, during the 1950's, a torrid relationship develops between the local squire and a nun. As in all Eduardo Mendoza's novels the touch is light and the humour a gentle undercurrent

Format: Paperback
A quiet story set mostly in 1950s Spain featuring a nun, a wealthy roué, a bandit leader and a supporting cast. It's elegant, well plotted and held my attention. But not my favourite work by this author - try No Word From Gurb as a very funny novel or A Light Comedy for something more substantial but also entertaining set in the same era, but also an enjoyable reading experience.

2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By A Customer on 5 April 2001
Format: Paperback
For me, this is the best of Mendoza's novels to date - even better than the still excellent, but different, La ciudad de los prodigios. It is ingeniously plotted, concise, varied in tone, subtle in its moral thinking. It shows what can still be achieved within a broadly realist novelistic framework.
