Item description for Castillos de Carton by Almudena Grandes...

Mara Jos Snchez trabaja de tasadora de arte en una casa madrilea de subastas. Un da recibe la llamada de un antiguo compaero y amante, Jaime Gonzlez, anuncindole que su comn amigo, Marcos Molina Schulz, se ha suicidado. La noticia no slo devuelve a la narradora a su poca de estudiante de Bellas Artes, cuando todava soaba con ser pintora, sino que le hace revivir la torrencial historia de amor que vivieron los tres cuando ella apenas tena veinte aos.

This is a tale of a time and a place, of Madrid in the 1980's, where the dullness of a dictatorship gave way to an explosion of life and color, and everything seemed possible. Years later Mara recalls a three-sided, excessive and doomed passion with the bitter emotion of what has become irretrievable.

Reviews - What do customers think about Castillos de Carton?

Bravo, Almudena Grandes  May 14, 2004
Soy americana, de media edad, y cuando visite a Madrid en marzo decidi comprar unas novelas cortas para mejorar mi espanol. Que suerte de escoger esta. Compre este libro por impulso - nunca habia leido nada de Almudena Grandes, pero desde la primera pagina no podia dejar de leerlo. Ahora quiero leer mas libros de ella. Lo recomiendo - es una historia de un amor entre 3 estudiantes de arte durante los 80s, y como resulto. Muy bien escrito, por una escritora que sabe mucho de la psicologia del amor.
