A novel of novels, Confessions is a love letter written by someone who has loved unconditionally; from someone who feels guilty of a violent death; from someone who can't understand the evil that runs through Western history. It is a novel about the soul of Europe, that which we've received and that which we offer to future generations. Originally a novel about teachers, it ended up as the story of a massive revenge in which maquis guerrilla fighters , the Pyrenean landscape, the Franco dictatorship, economic interests, the Vatican, a cat and human passion all play leading roles. The ruthless fight for power in 18th century Barcelona produces a string of victims, some more innocent than others.
