About the Author

Born in Barcelona in 1931, Juan Goytisolo is Spain's greatest living writer. A bitter opponent of the Franco regime, his early novels were banned in Spain. In 1956 he moved to Paris. Since then he has written extensively on the city as melting-pot, the expulsion of the Moors from Europe and the art of reading. In 2004 Goytisolo was awarded the Juan Rulfo International Latin American and Caribbean Prize for Literature. He lives in Morocco.


Juan Goytisolo is by some distance the most important living novelist from Spain

In Juan the Landless, the fury subsides, giving way to indifference to the homeland and the blossoming of love for the Muslim world. One awaits this final stage with impatience.

Juan Goytisolo is, undoubtedly, the greatest living Spanish novelist... He is forced to swallow the words he hates in order to excrete them with coprophilous pleasure: did not Jonathan Swift, in his time do something comparable with the English verbal tradition? Swift, Goytisolo; Joyce, Goytisolo; exiles condemned to live with the language of their oppressions, digest it, expel it, trample on it, and then resign themselves
*Carlos Fuentes*
