AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Félix Calvino's short stories are subtle and soulful, of life growing up in the villages of northern Spain under Franco, and in Australia, where the ghosts and habits of the old country have not vanished.' (Publisher's blurb)

Notes

  • David Malouf writes the back cover blurb: 'Lively, moving, humorous, strange, these small records of other lives in another place are a gift, and so is the austere and tender mode of their telling. Calvino's is a new voice in the room, individual, arresting, and now that we have been aware of it, indispensible to the many others that make up our story.'

'This essay aims to analyze A Hatful of Cherries, a collection of short stories by the Spanish-Australian author Félix Calvino. By taking into consideration both his biographical experience and the main themes highlighted in his stories, travel, memory and migration above all, I will investigate how Calvino creatively tries to make two different world communicate, intersect and connect, thus establishing a dialogue between the Spain of his childhood and modern day Australia.'
