Published by Lawrence & Wishart in 1991, 359 pages. Paperback (N2910)
Brand New Book
Perhaps more than any other war in the twentieth century, the Spanish Civil War was seen as a 'writers' war' - names such as Hemingway and Orwell spring to mind. But the women who went to Spain and wrote about it have often been forgotten.....
This new anthology is part of efforts to redress the balance. It includes writing by women from Britain, the United States, Australia and New Zealand - and from unsung nurses and relief workers as well as internationally celebrated writers. Bringing together extracts from memoirs, letters, diaries and poems, this collection provides a moving overview of the Spanish Civil War from the perspective of women participants.
Contributors include Emma Goldman, Lillian Hellman, Jessica Mitford and Sylvia Townsend Warner
