Part journalistic reporting, part pamphlet, part country drama, part pulp, History of Spain Told to Girls takes events and places from our recent history and gives them back to us in the form of a corrosive, polyphonic, vibrant puzzle. Kidnapping, Rohypnol, matriarchs, clueless gallerists, online communities of anorexic teenagers, and UFO appearances help form this choral novel in fragments, a brutal story that despite everything retains a constant longing for redemption.
