9780099512998: Obabakoak

One of only a hundred or so books originally written in the Basque language during the last four centuries, Obabakoak is a shimmering, mercurial novel about life in Obaba, a remote, exotic, Basque village.

Obaba is peopled with innocents and intellectuals, shepherds and schoolchildren, whilst everyone from a lovelorn schoolmistress to a cultured but self-hating dwarf wanders across the page.

Obabakoak is a dazzling collage of stories, town gossip, diary excerpts and literary theory, all held together by Atxaga's distinctive and tenderly ironic voice.

Product Description:

Title: Obabakoak <>Binding: Paperback <>Author: Bernardo Atxaga <>Publisher: VINTAGE

Review:

"A fine, shimmering, mercurial novel" ( Observer)

"A brilliantly inventive writer...He understands the nature of story telling and is at once terribly moving and wildly funny" (A. S. Byatt)

"An impressive intellectual achievement" ( New Statesman)

"Atxaga holds the attention by his sheer craft, by the complete control he exhibits" ( Independent)

"This English version beautifully retains Mr. Atxaga's magically flowing and seemingly simple style... an achievement not made easy by his considerable technical and linguistic virtuosity and his love of inventing ways to make language itself speak with new voices" ( New York Times Book Review)
