Ay Carmela!

Ay Carmela!T1821137133
Vaudeville double act Carmela and Paulino are captured by Franco s forces during the Spanish Civil War. Compelled to put on a show for the fascist army, they rehearse their material - music, songs, flamenco dances, and bizarre comedy sketches. But then, how can Carmela be dead? Ay Carmela! is a darkly hilarious and poignant testimonial to the brutal futility of war, which movingly reveals the failure of the living to learn from the dead. Funny, poetic and elegant, Steve Trafford s new translation brings Sinisterra s wonderful text vividly to life.
Author Jose Sanchis Sinisterra
