A Woman Unknown free pdf "Although many English writers have opened windows on Spain none has done it so intimately or so personally as Lucia Graves. A book of high literary distinction and extraordinary humanity."-Times Literary Supplement. This beautifully nuanced memoir is a profound meditation on the three cultures-Spanish, English, and Catalan-that have shaped Lucia Graves's life and thought. It is also a complex portrait of Spain under Franco. The author explores the patterns of love, sacrifice, and forbearance that mark not only her own life but those of many other Spanish women she has known.
