Juan Goytisolo, Fiestas. Introduction and notes by Kessel Schwartz. Dell, 1964 Cover blurb: "Goytisolo's poignant novel, banned in his own country, unfolds against the background of a Spain where poverty-stricken people suffer, lose their homes, and die, while unconcerned authorities plan costly religious celebrations. Men have become brutalized and have lost their capacity to rebel in the static and meaningless society that has trapped Goytisolo's characters. The strange mixture of savagery and tenderness in the mysterious Gorila; the pathos and tragedy of pretty Pira; and the unwitting betrayal and loss of innocence by young Pipo make this story an unforgettable commentary on contemporary man. The introduction and notes have been specially prepared by Kessel Schwartz, Professor of Modern Languages at the University of Miami, Coral Gables, Florida."
