Manciet’s spare, harrowing, yet profoundly lyrical tale of sickness, selfhood and longing translated here for the first time into English by James Thomas
A first English translation of a classic of Catalan modernism. From its first publication in 1906 this story of the sacrilegious love between Josafat, the bell-ringer and caretaker of Girona Cathedral, and Fineta, the prostitute, has shocked and enthralled generations of Catalan readers. It eventually led to its author and family being hounded out of Girona.
