Writing Galicia explores a part of Europe’s cultural and social landscape that has until now remained largely unmapped—the exciting body of creative work that, since the 1970s, has emerged as a result of contact between the small Atlantic nation of Galicia and the Anglophone world. Paying particular attention to the community of London Galicians and their descendants, this book traces representations of Galician cultural history through art and close, critical readings of literary works by, among others, Carlos Durán, Manuel Rivas, Xesús Fraga, and Ramiro Fonte. Too often neglected in literary studies, Galician culture is strongly evident throughout Europe’s cultural landscape, and this book allows us to reframe this small Atlantic culture.
