ABOUT "EL JUEGO DEL ÁNGEL" AND LEVEL OF SPANISH:

In turbulent Barcelona of the 1920s, a young writer makes his living by writing sensationalist stories under a pseudonym. The survivor of a troubled childhood, he takes refuge in the world of books and spends his nights spinning baroque tales about the city’s underworld. His life takes a dramatic turn when he receives an offer from a mysterious publisher to write a book unlike any other, in exchange for fortune and much more. Yet as he begins the work, he realises there is a connection between his haunting work and the shadows that surround him.

With captivating style, bestselling author, Carlos Ruiz Zafón transports us back to 1920's Barcelona to offer us an adventure through a labyrinth of secrets where passion and friendship are combined in a masterful story.

El Juego del Ángel is a prequel to the international bestseller, La Sombra del Viento.

If you understand approximately 80% of the below, we recommend you join us for the book club. All discussion will be in Spanish.

Un escritor nunca olvida la primera vez que acepta unas monedas o un elogio a cambio de una historia. Nunca olvida la primera vez que siente el dulce venedo de la vanidad en la sangre y cree que, si consigue que nadie descubra su falta de talento, el sueño de la literatura será capaz de poner techo sobre su cabeza, un plato caliente al final del día y lo que más anhela: su nombre impreso en un miserable pedazo de papel que seguramente vivirá más que él. Un escritor está condenado a recordar ese momento, porque para entonces ya está perdido y su alma tiene precio.

FUTURE EVENTS:

The book club is held once a month, with a different book each month. We change the country, theme and style of literature, and always choose highly acclaimed books by great authors. ¡Esperamos verte pronto!
