9781936070954: Barcelona Noir (Akashic Noir)

Don't be fooled - Barcelona, with all its illustrious colour and exterior finery, hasn't always been able to curb its darker yearnings. Blame it on a bubbling, repressive concoction made with a pinch of Church, a touch of Crown and a large dose of General Franco to stir up the insides of its very independent and anarchic Catalonian spirit. Repression, vice, immigration - the 14 stories in Barcelona Noir will divert readers' eyes from Barcelona's lively Ramblas and Gaudi spires, opening them onto the city's tainted side; one that will never appear on any tour.

Book Description Akashic Books,U.S., United States, 2011. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 208 x 132 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. One-of-a-kind Barcelona is as enchanting in real life as in literature, and the latest in the Akashic city noir series, Barcelona Noir, is a terrific entry point to sample its charms or to relive the adventure of traveling there [.] this collection of 14 stories that tap into history, politics and culture to cast a cloak of horror and humor on the city s distinctive neighborhoods. -- Miami Herald The 14 stories in Akashic s Barcelona volume hew closely to the bleak spirit of the noir genre, whether reaching back to the 1920s [.] or chronicling chaotic immigrant-infused present-day Barcelona. -- Publishers Weekly Each [contributor] presents his or her own personal picture of the city, and as a whole, the anthology projects a many-hued sense of place. As portrayed here, Barcelona is a city that looks different from every angle. -- Booklist With 50 titles in its noir series and counting, Akashic adds another fine anthology to the lineup, this time evoking the cultural, social, and physical precincts of Barcelona from the early 20th century to the present. Fans of Spanish literature and crime fiction will enjoy. -- Library Journal Includes brand-new stories by: Jordi Sierra i Fabra, Imma Monso, Santiago Roncagliolo, Francisco Paco Gonzalez Ledesma, Valerie Miles, David Barba, Isabel Franc, Lolita Bosch, Eric C. Aragon, Antonia Cortijos, Cristina Fallaras, Raul Argemi, Teresa Solana, and Andreu Martin. For some, Barcelona is a European enchantress of nouveau architecture, fusion tapas, and fine cava. To others, it s a Gothic labyrinth of tiny streets to lose oneself in; hashish-clouded after-hours bars to forget the time; dimly lit plazas with global bohemians squatting, prostitutes tempting. But come morning, its cold cobblestones and misty beachfronts have even darker stories to tell. Bookseller Inventory # AAT9781936070954
