    This is the first novel I have added to my favorites shelf in quite a while.Toward the end I began to feel echoes of The Brothers Karamazov with the three men Lluis, Soleras, and Cruells as counterparts to Ivan, Dmitri, and Alyosha, but only one woman Someone who d read Brothers recently or was paying attention would have figured this out on page 50 It has been too long since I read Dostoyevski to pursue this, but surely the parallel is not unintentional Both novels are complex, both intensely examine evil and faith, sin and human frailty There are so many threads here that it is impossible to say it s about One can say it s set in Barcelona and the Republican front during the Spanish Civil War The background of the tapestry is betrayal, both personal and political The personal betrayals takes place in front of us, while the mostly offstage political betrayal is the thickening murk that leads to undermining the Republican forces and staining its memory with atrocities Sales adeptly contrasts various types of political betrayal failed Cruells brief foray , double and equivocal Lamoneda and Soler s and truly self serving a...

    Torn on the rating I d give it 4.5 stars if I could, but I rounded up for the number of amazing passages I felt myself underlining If it drags too long on certain sections, especially the first, it absolutely makes up for that with the rest Ultimately, though, what s great about this novel is truly great While set in the Spanish Civil War, it tells the story from a perspective that is uncommon in novels on the subject or war novels in general Written by a former Republican officer, Uncertain Glory refuses to glorify any lost causes It gives clear description of the absurdity of the conflict, but not in the simple, tried means of body counts It takes on the issue from several angles, looking at it from the perspective of traitors, apolitical victims, true believers, opportunists, priests fighting for anti clerical governments, anarchists fighting for democracy It also has a great d...

    Spanish Civil War novel set in BarcelonaWe have just read the book published by Maclehose Press in the UK Autumn 2014Uncertain Glory is a major if occasionally hard to follow novel set in and around Barcelona during the Spanish Civil War It is highly unusual in that it is written from the point of view of the losing socialist anarchist side in the War The book was written by Joan Sales who fought in the war on the side of the Barcelona socialists It was first published in an abbreviated and highly censored version under the Franco regime in 1956 the much fuller uncensored version was published in 1971 But it has taken until now, 21 years after Sales died, for the book to be translated from the Catalan original into English by Peter Bush and it is a quite excellent translation.The book is in three parts The first describes how young lawyer Llu s joins up and goes to war on the Aragonese front Yes there are plenty of bloody battles, but also times of relaxation and quiet in the village of Olivel where Llu s ignore much of the traditional soldier s RR routine and becomes infatuated with the widowed carlana of the village The second part features Trini, the girl that Llu s left behind in Barcelona with Ramon, his baby son The ...

    This is a particularly good novel, I think On the cover the book s blurb says it stands in counterpart to the politically focused Homage to Catalonia of George Orwell and Hemingway s death extolling For Whom the Bell Tolls I think Uncertain Glory complex that either The characters are neither fiercely motivated no matter the slogan spouting by the Republican ideas for which they serve nor surrendered to the futility of those ideas I finally formed the impression that the big engine driving the novel is love At its heart is a love triangle, and the triplet structure is contained in the triptych of voices telling the story in journal entries, letters, and 1st person narrative I began to think it primarily a love story when I read what s perhaps the most powerful image of the novel, a female mantis devouring a male immediately after mating It s a novel much beautiful than that shuddering vision And finally maybe it can be thought to be primarily a love novel because though taking place during the Spanish Civil War there s little fighting until the end This is the Aragon Front beginning in the summer of 1937 and continuing into the spring of 1938, also the place and time of Orwell s volunteer service In this high, dry environment plays out the dense weave of relationships The Aragon Front is a quiet zone most occupied by the constant scouring for supplies, regrouping of units, and even some fra...

    This is obviously a great story but all of the weird translation choices having characters speak in stage cockney dialect, occasional cries of Crikey etc, which makes it seem like all the Spanish peasants are straight from a production of My Fair Lady nearly ruins it.
