Josep Pla

Josep Pla’s (1897-1981) immense body of fiction, travel writing, and notebooks has only just begun to surface in English. Banned from Spain in 1924 for his criticisms of the dictator, Pla continued to report from Russia, Rome, Berlin, and London before returning to Madrid in 1927. He supported the new Spanish Republic that emerged in 1931, but was soon disillusioned and left the country during the Civil War, to return in 1939. Under the Franco regime, he was internally exiled to Palafrugell and his articles for the weekly review Destino were frequently censored. His complete works are published in forty-five volumes.
