The Moon Wind recounts the life of a provincial adolescent in Francoist Spain during a week of the month of July 1969. While man is walking on the moon, the adolescent lives in a world anchored in the earth. In this constricted world, he discovers the reality of life, society, and sex, the weight of his being and of those who surround him, loyalty and his father’s worth. Magisterially narrated by one of the best contemporary Spanish writers.
