LA BODEGA. The Fruit of the Vine

£1.50

“The overwhelming value to stress concerning La Bodega is its ability to convey a sense of what life was like on a daily basis for the people in the South. It expresses the persecution of labour leaders following the ‘Black Hand’ hysteria, placing it in a relatable context to similar ‘Red Scares’ throughout the world. It demonstrates the relationship of anarchist ‘believers’ to a larger public who considers the radical notions utopian, yet still harbor a deep respect. Perhaps most successfully, the novel puts human faces to the material depravity of the masks in Andalusia. Such forms of knowledge surely supplement the rich historical record available.”
