The shadow of the wind

One morning from 1945 the owner of a modest book of used books leads the eleven-year-old son, Daniel, in the heart of the old town of Barcelona at the cemetery of forgotten books, a place where thousands of books of which time has deleted the memory, come Subtracts to oblivion. Here Daniel comes in possession of the book "cursed" which will change the course of his life, introducing him into a maze of intrigues related to the figure of his author and for some time buried in the dark soul of the city. A novel in which the glows of a disturbing past reverberated on the present of the young protagonist, in a Barcelona by dual identity: the rich and elegant one of the last splendors of modernism and the showers of the post-war period.
