Barcelona, July 19
The literary company of Juan Marse says the Spanish novelist has died. He was 87.
The Carmen Balcells company introduced his passing on Sunday. It didn’t give a cause for his loss of life.
Marse was certainly one of Spain’s most-respected novelists over the previous few a long time and the winner of the 2008 Cervantes Prize, the Spanish-speaking world’s prime literary award.
Marse’s most necessary novel was “Úlitmas tardes on Teresa” (“Last Afternoons with Teresa”) printed in 1965. It chronicles the misadventure of a working-class adolescent who tries to win over a lady from the upscale aspect of Barcelona.
Marse, a local of the town, adopted that success with a number of different novels that kind a portrait of the social transformation of Spain throughout the latter a part of the 20th century. AP
