"It is natural that Goytisolo should immediately bring Joyce, Malcolm Lowry, Beckett and even Nabokov to mind . . . he is fully worthy to be considered among the major innovators of our time." --V.S. Pritchett, The New Yorker<br /><br />"An epic work, to be read and re-read." --Mario Vargas Llosa<br /><br />"[A] frank and solitary writer: on a crusade for truth. . . . He's an outsider—his own man. --Guillermo Cabrera Infante

From the Inside Flap
In Makbara, Juan Goytisolo-- widely considered Spains greatest living writer-- again dazzles the reader with his energetic, stylistic prose, which he himself compares to a snake: cunning, sly, sinuous. But the themes in Makbara are perhaps more universal than in his earlier works. Makbara is full of its own kind of warmth, humor, and love. After all, makbara is an Arab word referring to the spot in North African cemeteries where young couples meet for romantic encounters. Sex, for Goytisolo, is clearly the greatest cosmic joke, the great leveller. Sex, he says, is above all freedom.
