Item description for Manolo, recuerdas? by Manuel Altes...

Three generations of the working class Alts family live through the Great Depression, the Spanish Civil War, and the Franco dictatorship in this memoir that never ceases to be intensely personal as it makes keen social observations. Living in Barcelona during the most radically changing period in modern Spanish history, the Alts family members constantly struggle to maintain their nostalgic memories of bull running, soccer games, boxing matches, and shared glasses of vermouth on Sundays---images that the powerful tide of fascism is swiftly sweeping away.
La vida de tres generaciones de la familia Alts, de clase trabajadora que viven la poca de la Gran Depresin, la Guerra Civil espaola y la dictadura de Franco est recogida en estas memorias, de marcado carcter personal y con agudas observaciones sobre la sociedad del momento. Viviendo en Barcelona durante el periodo de cambio ms radical en la historia moderna de Espaa, los miembros de la familia Alts luchan constantemente para mantener sus nostlgicos recuerdos: corridas de toros, partidos de ftbol, combates de boxeo y los aperitivos con verm de los domingos - imgenes que la poderosa marea del fascismo est haciendo desaparecer rpidamente.
