Esteban Salazar Chapela (Malaga, 1900-London, 1965) is one of the most forgotten contemporary authors. A regular contributor to the Madrid newspapers El Sol and La Voz and the magazines La Gaceta Literaria and Revista de Occidente, he emerged as a narrator in 1931 with Pero sin hijos. In Great Britain, where he lived in exile since 1939, he wrote critical reviews and opinion articles that were published in the main Latin American newspapers.
This volume gathers, for the first time, a selection of his literary and journalistic work published between 1926 and 1964. In addition numerous examples of literary criticism, articles and essays, fragments of his novels and two of his short stories (El sueño de África and Destino y casualidad) are included as a sample of his narrative work.
Francisca Montiel Rayo, professor of Spanish Language and Literature and founding member of the Group of Studies of the Literary Exile (GEXEL) of the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, has been in charge of this anthology.
