Product description

Review

'Tyrant Banderas was first published in 1926 and remains a masterpiece - now given a new lease of life by Peter Bush's excellent translation.'

(The Observer)

About the Author

RAMON DEL VALL-INCLAN (1866–1936) was born into an impoverished aristocratic family in a rural village in Galicia, Spain. His first book of stories came out in Spain in 1895. Valle-Inclán was celebrated as the author of Sonatas: The Memoirs of the Marquis of Bradomín, which was published in 1904 and is considered the finest novel of Spanish modernismo, as well as for his extensive and important career in the theater, not only as a major twentieth-century playwright but also as a director and actor.
PETER BUSH
is an award-winning translator who lives in Barcelona. He is currently translating Quim Monzó’s A Thousand Morons and Josep Pla’s The Gray Notebook (forthcoming from NYRB Classics).
ALBERTO MANGUEL
is an Argentinian-born Canadian essayist and novelist. He has written twenty works of criticism, including The Dictionary of Imaginary Places (with Gianni Guadalupi), A History of Reading, and The Library at Night.
