Count Julian

Spanish Literature Series
Juan Goytisolo
Translated by Helen Lane

Exiled in Tangiers, cut off from home and country, the narrator of Count Julian rants against the homeland he was forced to leave: Spain. The second novel in Juan Goytisolo’s trilogy (including Marks of Identity and Juan the Landless), this story of an exiled Spaniard confronts all of Goytisolo’s own worst fears about fascist Spain.

The narrator identifies himself with the real Count Julian, the Great Traitor who allegedly opened the gates of Spain to an invasion of Moors and the consequent eight hundred years of Islamic Influence. For the narrator, nothing short of the total destruction of Spain and all things Spanish will be an acceptable punishment for his exile.
