Here is our suggested list of must-read Barcelona fiction books:
The Cathedral of the Sea, by Ildefonso Falcones
The best book of historical fiction set in Barcelona so far and one of my favorite novels about Barcelona. It explains the construction of Santa Maria del Mar church through the life of a local character that will start as an outcast and little by little ascend on the local social scale.
A story within a story, The Shadow of the Wind tells the story of a young man from the Spanish post-civil war times investigates the mysterious life of a writer from the early 1900’s that fascinates him. Wonder around the urban settings of two different Barcelonas.
A book that is read in all high schools in their literature class (but it’s not for kids!). Written by a lady author during her exile, it explains the hard life of a working class woman in the Barcelona from the 2nd Republic time, the Spanish Civil War and the post-war time. Quite different to George Orwell’s Homage to Catalonia! Only available on Amazon.
AND BONUS! Want to understand what all that Catalonia Independence thing is about?
