Read full description of the books:
Alcarria is a natural region of New Castile with unclear boundaries. Uncrowded, it is picturesque and rugged, well watered and fertile in the valleys. The steppe and maquis occupy a good part of its soil with a varied and abundant aromatic flora that produces an excellent honey. Camilo José Cela, the author of The Family of Pascual Duarte and The Hive, undisputed master of the Spanish novel of the twentieth century, spent a few days in Alcarria, and he liked it. "People seemed good to me," he says. "They speak a magnificent Castilian, with a perfect accent and, without really knowing what I came to do at home, they treated me well, gave me food, if not abundantly, at least amicably ". During his comings and goings through the Alcarria, Camilo José Cela recorded in a notebook all that he saw: these notes formed the canvas of this book that was written while walking and "to the good franquette". It is an escape book written with happiness by someone who has "taken the key of the fields", and this is one of the most rigorous, most important contemporary Spanish writers.
