Int'l Book Day: Jordi Gracia's "Cervantes"

Jordi Gracia, Miguel de Cervantes. La Conquista de la Ironia. Una Biografía , 2016, 400 p.

Publisher’s summary:

This biography wants to take off some of the dust of 400 years of history that have settled on Cervantes; it wants to bring near to us his human and emotional dimension, his condition of a firm man of weapons and an inexhaustible man of letters, a unique writer – and also his carried away vitality, his defence of women, and his quest to understand existence as nobody had understood it until then: at the modern crossroads of irony. 256 more words
