Description
(Winner of the Premi d'honor de les Lletres Catalanes) Gabriel García Márquez called this "the most beautiful novel published in Spain since the Civil War," and it earned Mercè Rodoreda the highest Catalan literary honor. Natalia, a pretty shopgirl in 1930s Barcelona, hesitates when a stranger asks her to dance at the fiesta in Diamond Square. But Joe is charming and forceful, and she takes his hand. Over their years together, Natalia is awakened to both the good and bad in life; the pigeons that Joe decides to breed, for example, delight their children, though they infuriate her. Then civil war erupts, and Natalia struggles to feed her family while Joe goes to fight the fascists, and one by one his beloved birds fly away.
