Juan Goytisolo: Campos De Nijar

One boy, pointedly named Juan, implores the narrator our Juan? The boy may embody a past Juan of whom the present man is avatar–and what about the other Juans in the book? Readers of Goytisolo’s later books, such as “Juan the Landless,” may be surprised by “Nijar Country”‘s precociously complex counterpoint, so deftly manipulated as to possibly escape detection.


Goytisolo has written other “travelogs,” each accomplishing multiple purposes. Here his vocabulary and grammar sound Nijar’s soulful culture. Peter Bush’s flexible translation admirably hurdles such potential obstacles of diction and expression. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. Want to Read saving….
