Item description for Animales urbanos (Barbaros) by Karin Leiz...

In the Barcelona of the 1940s, an eight-year-old girl contemplates the life that exists beyond the walls of her family's house in the outskirts of the Tibidabo. From her sheltered enclave, the girl's first interaction with the outside world is through the animals of the village---the horses, mules, rabbits, dogs, dairy cows, and crowing roosters. Soon she finds herself befriending the humanity beyond her doorstep that is just as diverse and fascinating as her animal friends--- the vulgar young lady who works constantly and talks to her parrot; the gypsy cabdriver's family; and the grown woman with both a husband and a lifelong lover.
En la Barcelona de los aos cuarenta una nia de ocho aos contempla la vida que discurre ms all del muro de su casa situada en las faldas del Tibidabo, en lo que por entonces eran terrenos entre huertas, baldos, y pequeas casitas suburbanas. La nia, desde su mundo protegido, da sus primeros pasos en el mundo que la rodea entre animales de todos los pelajes---los caballos y los mulos que arrastran los carros de la basura y de la alfalfa, las gallinas, los conejos, los callejeros, las vacas lecheras, los gallos. Pero no menos asombrada queda ante el tambin variado pelaje de la humanidad del barrio: una seorita cursi y remilgada que trabaja mucho y conversa siempre con su loro, una familia de gitanos taxistas, y una seora con marido y amante de toda la vida.
