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.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent fiction 5 April 2001
By A Customer
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.
