Synopsis

'It's been a long time since I've read a book that was so persuasive and moving, so intelligently conceived.' Mario Vargas Llosa



Miren and Bittori have been best friends all their lives, growing up in the same small town in the north of Spain. With limited interest in politics, the terrorist threat posed by ETA seems to affect them little. When Bittori's husband starts receiving threatening letters from the violent group, however - demanding money, accusing him of being a police informant - she turns to her friend for help. But Miren's loyalties are torn: her son Joxe Mari has just been recruited to the group as a terrorist and to denounce them as evil would be to condemn her own flesh and blood. Tensions rise, relationships fracture, and events race towards a violent, tragic conclusion . . .



Fernando Aramburu's Homeland is a gripping story and devastating exploration of the meaning of family, friendship, what it's like to live in the shadow of terrorism, and how countries and their people can possibly come to terms with their violent pasts.

Fernando Aramburu is one of the most outstanding of current writers in Spanish. His nine novels and four books of short stories have been widely praised. But it is his novel Patria (Homeland), acclaimed by critics and a stunning success among readers in Spain and across Europe, that has gained him the widest international readership. Homeland has been awarded numerous prizes, including the National Prize for Literature and the National Critics Prize in Spain and the Strega Europeo Prize and the Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa International Literary Prize in Italy. He currently lives in Germany, where he worked as a Spanish teacher since 1985. Homeland is his first book to be translated into English.
