Here is an essential Unamuno reader, offering a full-length novel, Able Sanchez, and two remarkable short stories, The Madness of Doctor Montarco and San Manuel Bueno, Martyr.

Perhaps most famous for his philosophical essay, The Tragic Sense of Life, Unamuno was one of the most dynamic intellects in the extraordinary flowering of Spanish culture in the early twentieth century–a period that saw the arrival of artists as varied as Luis Bunuel, Pablo Casals, Pablo Picasso, Joan Miro, Salvador Dali, Federico Garcia Lorca, and Jose Ortega y Gasset.

Featuring characters who are quixotic, philosophically existential, and confronting the dull ache of modernity, Unamuon’s fiction speaks to the modern reader with awesome power.

Now with a new introduction by renowned professor of Spanish literature, Mario J. Valdes.
