After the Death of Don Juan




A fantasy-tinged historical novel set in Spain from the author of Lolly Willowes

This is the story of what happens after Don Juan dies - according to legend, dragged to hell for the murder of a man whose daughter he has attempted to seduce. Set in the Spanish countryside, and featuring a diverse cast of peasants, aristocrats and vengeful ghosts, this unique historical novel was Sylvia Townsend Warner's response to the Spanish Civil War, which she had witnessed at first-hand as an ambulance driver. Funny, moving and satirical, it is an oblique reflection on the looming threat of fascism.
