Wolf Moon
Peter Owen World Series: Spain
By  Julio Llamazares

Having lost the Civil War in Spain, four republican rebels lead a fugitive existence deep in the Cantabrian mountains. They are on the run, skirmishing with Franco’s soldiers, knowing that surrender means execution. Wounded and hungry the rebels are frequently drawn from the safety of the mountains into the villages they once inhabited, not only risking their lives but the lives of anyone helping them. Faced with the lonely mountains, its harsh winters and unforgiving summers, it is only a matter of time before the Fascists hunt them down.First published in 1985, Wolf Moon was the first novel to break with the Pact of Forgetting (Pacto de Olvido), a political and cultural amnesty in Spain, following Franco’s death in 1975, provided for the regime’s supporters. Llamazares’s lyrical prose serves to animate the wilderness, making the Spanish landscape as much a witness to the brutal oppression of the Franco regime as the persecuted villagers and republicans.

Inventing Love
Peter Owen World Series: Spain
By Jose Ovejero
Translated by Kathryn Phillips-Miles, Simon Deefholts

When Samuel receives a call out of the blue about the death of his lover Clara, his own numbing existence seems about to come to an end. Does it matter that he never knew Clara? And, if he invents a past for his love and his loss, could he even fake his way through her funeral? Unable to pass up the chance at leading a fresh, new life, Samuel leads himself down a path of lies, until he can no longer distinguish between what is real and what he has invented. Ovejero’s existential thriller of first mistaken and then stolen identity exposes the fictions people create to sustain themselves in a dehumanising modern world.

King of the Sky

By Nicola Davies
Illustrated by Laura Carlin

A powerful and beautifully illustrated story about migration and the meaning of home, from the award-winning team behind The Promise. A breathtaking new picture book by children’s author Nicola Davies, illustrated by Laura Carlin, winner of the Bratislava Illustration Biennale and the Bologna Ragazzi Prize for Illustration. Starting a new life in a new country, a young boy feels lost and alone – until he meets an old man who keeps racing pigeons. Together they pin their hopes on a race across Europe and the special bird they believe can win it: King of the Sky. Nicola Davies’ beautiful story – an immigrant’s tale with a powerful resonance in our troubled times – is illustrated by an artist who makes the world anew with every picture. A musical adaptation of King of the Sky has already met with success on the stage, shown two years running at the Hay Festival and due to tour Welsh theatres next spring.
