Resumen del Libro
Isabel Garcia Lorca spent a great part of her last years writing this book which saw the light after her death, and which was granted the XV Comillas Prize for biography and memoirs. It evokes the lost paradise of childhood, a world broken to pieces by the murder of her brother Federico and of her brother-in-law Manuel Fernandez-Montesinos at the beginning of the Spanish Civil War. She also reconstructs her first exile to Brussels, and the reunion with her parents in the United States, a place which they would leave two decades later for a Spain which they hardly recognized. These memories are an emotive evocation of the places and people that Isabel came to know, and placed above all of them, the magnetic centre of that world, her brother Federico.
