Notes:
Translated from the Catalan.
First published in Spanish in 1956, 'Uncertain Glory' was the first novel to tell the story of the Spanish Civil War from the Catalan side - the loser's side. Against this backdrop of bitter fratricidal war is set a timeless story of three men who love the same woman. Sales condemns the fascist and anarchists with equal vehemence. In describing the war in its full complexity, he avoids a simplistic division into good and evil. Even the novel's hero, Juli Soleras, the most compelling character in Catalan literature, is more of an anti-hero: half philosopher, half cynic, locked in an eternal struggle with himself.
