El somni de Farringdon Road


In the politically barren climate of the Barcelona months before the outbreak of the Civil War, Pau Capdevila is a young lawyer who from time to time helps anarchist workers to smooth out the law. He does not believe in anything nor is he very aware that his actions can have consequences beyond his immediate surroundings. Convalescent of a tuberculosis, is forced to move away from the city just beginning the war, moment that will mark the beginning of.

The vital transformation of Pau. The dream of Farringdon Road, the debut in the narrative of Antoni Vives, is an epic of the Civil War. An addictive novel of love, of adventures and action overwhelmed by the overwhelming ideological debates of the time. In times of disgusted and disenchanted, perhaps it is worthwhile to let yourself be dragged through the dreams of freedom and justice of a whole generation of fighters, embodied here by a group of international brigades.
