Today’s episode is dedicated to six novels by Miguel Delibes.

Our guest, Dan Whitcombe talks through a collection of his books, placing them in historical context and describing plot and characters.

Although we do touch on aspects of his life, mainly those that had an obvious impact on the work we discuss, we don’t really go into any detail about Miguel Delibes’ life. If you want to find out more about him, check out http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Miguel_Delibes
