Wolf Moon

by Julio Llamazares
£9.99   paperback  Peter Owen Publishers (2017)

Wolf Moon by Julio Llamazares Defeated by the Nationalists, four Republican fugitives flee into the Cantabrian mountains at the end of the Spanish Civil War. They are on the run, skirmishing with the Guardia Civil, knowing that surrender means death. Wounded and hungry they are frequently drawn from the safety of the wilderness into the villages they once inhabited, not only risking their lives but the lives of those sympathizers helping them. Faced with the lonely mountains, harsh winters and unforgiving summers, it is only a matter of time before they are hunted down.
 
Llamazares's lyrical prose vividly animates the wilderness, making the Spanish landscape as much a witness to the brutal oppression of the Franco regime as the persecuted villagers and republicans.
 
Published in 1985, Wolf Moon was the first novel that centred on the Spanish Maquis to be published in Spain after Franco's death in 1975.
 
Translated from the Spanish by Simon Deefholts and Kathryn Phillips-Miles
