Madrid Book Fair

Held annually from the end of May to the middle of June in the Retiro Park, the Madrid Book Fair, with some 450 stands, attracts two and a half million visitors. Leading authors attend to sign copies of their latest works, and sales of the most popular individual titles run into several thousand each, with well over a quarter of a million all told. Children’s literature and activities receive special promotion, and braille and multimedia productions have been a feature since 1995. Many new publications are launched in conjunction with the fair, which is also accessible via the Internet.

EAMONN RODGERS


Manent, Albert

b. 1930, Premià de Dalt

Writer

Manent began as a poet, but soon turned to journalism and literary criticism. His critical writing avoids dogma and eschews eclecticism. His major contributions to Catalan literary criticism are three books on major figures of Noucentisme, including Carles Riba (1963), Josep Carner i el noucentisme: vida, obra i llegenda (Josep Carner and Noucentisme: Life, Work and Legend) (1969), and Jaume Bofill i Mates Guerau, de Lliost: l’home, el poeta, el polític (Jaume Bofill i Mates Guerau de Lliost: The Man, the Poet, the Politician) (1979). Another of Manent’s notable contributions is his huge bibliography of Catalan writers who wrote in exile after the Spanish Civil War, Literatura catalana a l’exili (Catalan Literature in Exile) (1976). Manent’s Escriptors i editors del Noucents (Writers and Editors of the 1900s) (1984) is a collection of articles on various Catalan authors, as well as his reflections on cultural resistance under Franco and aspects of the development of book publishing during the twentieth century.
