Description

‘She has a talent amounting to genius’ John Updike

Don Juan, that notorious libertine, has disappeared. Has he been dragged down to hell by demons, as rumoured – or has he escaped? Dona Ana, the woman he tried to seduce, will stop at nothing to discover the truth. Set in a rural eighteenth-century Spain rife with suspicion and cruelty, and featuring a glorious cast of peasants, aristocrats and vengeful ghosts, this moving, surprising tragicomedy is also Sylvia Townsend Warner’s response to the dark days of the Spanish Civil War.

‘The kind of novelist who inspires an intense sense of ownership in her fans’ Sarah Waters
