about this item

A major work, considered the fundamental novel of modern Basque literature.

"Martutene could well be considered the highest summit of Basque-language novels. . . . This superb novel recalls the greatness of Tolstoy and the obsessive stylistic accuracy of Flaubert."Ángel Basanta,El Cultural

Set in the current Basque Country, Martutene is an ambitious and truly grand novel with a splendid array of characters: two bourgeois couples worn down by years of marriage, their group of friends, and the newcomer Lynn, a young American sociologist. An insightful portrait of the post-ETA Basque country and an exploration of those thoughts and feelings that expose our miseries and our deepest fears as human beings.
