Madrid Tales

Edited by Helen Constantine
Translated by Margaret Jull Costa

City Tales

  • The first anthology of stories exclusively set in Madrid takes in the key places - the Gran Via, the Prado, the Retiro Park, and the Plaza Mayor - and reveals Madrid life in all its facets
  • None of these stories have previously been translated into English.
  • Includes the finest and most evocative tales of Madrid, some by well-known writers such as Benito Perez Galdos, Javier Marias, Juan Jose Millas, and Carmen Martin Gaite; others by writers whose names will be less familiar
  • Translated by prize-winning translator Margaret Jull Costa, whose awards include the 2009 and 2010 Premio Valle-Inclan for, respectively, The Accordionist's Son by Bernardo Atxaga and Your Face Tomorrow 3: Poison, Shadow and Farewell by Javier Marias
