Stone in a Landslide Paperback

Edited by Paul Mitchell



The beginning of the 20th century: 13-year-old Conxa has to leave her home village in the Pyrenees to work for her childless aunt.

After years of hard labour, she finds love with Jaume - a love that will be thwarted by the Spanish Civil War.

Approaching her own death, Conxa looks back on a life in which she has lost everything except her own indomitable spirit. ------- Why Peirene chose to publish this book: 'I fell in love with Conxa's narrative voice, its stoic calmness and the complete lack of anger and bitterness.

It's a timeless voice, down to earth and full of human contradictory nuances.

It's the expression of someone who searches for understanding in a changing world but senses that ultimately there may be no such thing.' Meike Ziervogel, Publisher
