Oil-Lamp Times



The protagonist of this book (1907?1997) illustrates with simplicity a hundred years of history of a region, la Alpujarra, told
through the eyes of a generous, brave and sincere character. Left motherless at the age of three, he overcame terrible events.
Persecuted at the beginning of the Civil War, he was forced to leave his wife and daughter and hide in the mountains. He was sent to
a concentration camp at the end of the conflict and later imprisoned during the time of the resistance, where he nearly lost his life.
His son has compiled the events over dozens of years to create the emotive tribute this story leaves. At the same time, he describes
with precision scenes and elements that are of unquestionable historical and cultural value.
The work, furthermore, reflects part of the author?s experiences, a privileged witness to the dramatic unfolding of events since the
times of the oil lamp.
