La jauría y la niebla

(The Hounds and the Fog) Algaida, 2009

» II Logroño Prize for Fiction

One morning in December, Ander faces one of the hardest moments of his existence: going to class. The same day, the writer Ignacio Mayor visits the Basque School where Ander studies, to give a conference.

With the social pressures of school life ever-present, these characters, intertwined by feelings, coincidence and memory, weave a story about the violence that groups can wield over individuals, the loss of innocence and the need to recover it in order to carry on living.
