This charming tale of friendships lost and found spawns from a Sunday stroll through old Madrid. Illustrations by Marina Martin Cochet artfully capture the spirit of the piece.
Emilia Pardo Bazán was one of the foremost Spanish intellectuals of the nineteenth century. Born in 1851 in the Galician sea port of La Coruña, she was the only child of wealthy aristocratic parents. From an early age she was a voracious reader and precociously talented writer, publishing her first short story when she was 15. In the 1870s, she travelled extensively throughout Europe, with her husband, parents, and later, alone. On her return to Spain, she became interested in philosophy and pedagogical reform, and as well as publishing 18 novels and over 600 stories in her lifetime, was prolific as a journalist, correspondent, lecturer and publisher.
