Book Description:
A tragic tale of hatred between two half brothers, Celebration in the Northwest (Fiesta al Noroeste) is a gripping novel by Ana Mar a Matute, one of twentieth century Spain s most important writers. At the center of the novel are confessions that the protagonist, Juan Medinao, makes to a local priest in the fictional Castilian town of Art mila. Those confessions reveal the volatile mixture of attraction and repulsion between Juan and his half brother, Pablo. In describing the troubled bond between these characters, Matute creates a harrowing, modern enactment of the Biblical tale of Cain and Abel. Celebration in the Northwest is remarkable for its evocative prose, its riveting plot, and its portrayal of a character overcome by bitterness, envy, rage, and alienation.
