What can I say? Mercè Rodoreda is an author in ten thousand. It's a book about multiple generations of women, their family and others related, time, decay, and memory. It's about legacy, and time's unconcerned disintegration thereof. She explores each character's peculiar fixations, passions, and regrets. She chooses details to linger on that explain the whole. There's an overall sense of loss. I'll definitely have to read it again someday. I'd be remiss not to mention the translator, Josep Miquel Sobrer. There were a bunch of passages and ideas that seem like they'd be really hard to translate well, but it always came out beautifully.

"Of the vanity, the hatred, the shards of love, all that was left was dust and a sad spectacle of splendor and forgetfulness." ( )
