Home is like a different time, first published in Galician in 2011, is widely regarded as one of the most significant novels to engage with Galicia’s centuries-long history of emigration.
Forever in Galicia is the most extensive account of Galician identity ever written, an idiosyncratic text that spans and erodes the traditional genres of memoir, political treatise, historical essay and revisionist analysis.
