Spanish Writer Eduardo Mendoza Wins The 2016 Cervantes Prize


The Cervantes Prize (El Premio de Literatura en Lengua Castellana Miguel de Cervantes), the highest Spanish speaking literary honour, has been awarded this year to Eduardo Mendoza, as announced today by the Spanish Education and Culture Minister Iñigo Méndez de Vigo. You can read more about Eduardo Mendoza in Wikipedia here.  You can find some entries about Eduardo Mendoza books at A Crime is Afoot. I highly recommend two of his books, his first book, La verdad sobre el caso Savolta (The Truth about the Savolta Case, 1975) and, probably his best known book, La ciudad de los prodigios (The City of Marvels, 1986), about the social and urban evolution of Barcelona between the Universal Expositions of 1888 and 1929.
