Juan the Landless

Coleman Dowell Literature Series
Juan Goytisolo
Translated by Peter Bush

Juan Goytisolo’s radical revision of his masterpiece Juan the Landless is the starting-point for this new translation by renowned translator Peter Bush. The new text focuses on Goytisolo’s surreal exploration and rejection of his own roots, Catholic Spain’s repression of Muslims, Jews and gays, his ancestors’ exploitation of Cuban slaves and his own forging of a language at once poetic, politic and ironic that celebrates the erotic act of writing and and the anarchic joy of being the ultimate outsider. In Juan the Landless the greatest living novelist from Spain defiantly re-invents tradition and the world as a man without a home, without a country, in praise of pariahs.
