Nada by Carmen Laforet( Book )

280 editions published between 1945 and 2017 in 11 languages and held by 2,324 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Loosely based on the author's own life, Nada is the story of an orphaned young woman who leaves her small town to attend university in war-ravaged Barcelona." "Residing amid genteel poverty in a mysterious house on Calle de Aribau, young Andrea falls in with a wealthy band of schoolmates who provide a rich counterpoint to the squalor of her home life. As experience overtakes innocence, Andrea gradually learns the disquieting truth about the people she shares her life with: her overbearing and superstitious aunt Angustias; her nihilistic yet artistically gifted uncle Roman and his violent brother Juan; and Juan's disturbingly beautiful wife, Gloria, who secretly supports the clan with her gambling. From existential crisis to a growing maturity and resolve, Andrea's passionate inner journey leaves her wiser, stronger, and filled with hope for the future."--Jacket

La mujer nueva by Carmen Laforet( Book )

98 editions published between 1955 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 824 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Paulina, una mujer de mediana edad, se separa de su marido, cuyo matrimonio es invalidado por las coincidencias contradictorias de la guerra civil y decide independizarse y demostrar que puede valerse por sí misma, acomodándose en un piso en Madrid y, si es necesario, haciéndose cargo de su hijo. Es una nueva vida, llena de desconocidos horizontes, descubre de nuevo el amor y mantiene una apasionada relación amorosa. Esta historia prodía parecer habitual en nuestra época pero La mujer nueva está escrita en los años cincuenta, en plena posguerra y en una etapa de gran represión franquista lo que hace de esta novela una precursora en España de una literatura feminista. --

Carta a don Juan : cuentos completos by Carmen Laforet( Book )

10 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in Spanish and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Imposible ... ¡Que bella palabra, qué alta y qué brillante!, leemos en Carta a Don Juan . Es la misma voz de adolescente que poco antes, en "Fuga primera", ponía en boca de la Luna: ¡Nunca te atreviste a vivir, mujer, y tenías en tu corazón la fuente de la vida! Los primeros textos de Carmen Laforet, nunca antes publicados, vibran en su cándida osadía con toda pureza, el ansia de libertad y el don poético que informarán su obra futura. Este volumen consta de tres partes: la primera incluye siete cuentos que podría haber escrito Andrea, la protagonista de Nada, en la segunda nos reencontramos con los diez cuentos clásicos que, aunque nunca faltan en las antologías del género, no habían vuelto a reunirse desde hacía treinta años, y en la tercera, por último, se recuperan ocho cuentos más, que fueron su última contribución al género, abandonando a partir de 1955
