In a folder in the archives of the Baroja family home in Bera (Navarra), has appeared the last installment of the trilogy of the Spanish Civil War ‘Las saturnales’, started with ‘The vagabond singer’, continued with ‘Miseries of war’ and now closed with the new text ‘The quirks of luck‘. The work presents the three main characteristics of the author: his obsession with the Civil War, the presence of frustrated love and his direct and clear style.
‘The quirks of luck‘Tells the story of a man who travels from Madrid to Valencia and observes the consequences that the war has left in Spain. It appears 65 years after it was written and will be published in November by Espasa. The book confirms the author's negative view of the Civil War, which Baroja considers to be a disgrace for Spain and that the democratization of politics and the politicization of Spanish society were factors that led to the war.
The novel must have been written between 1948 and 1952, probably in Madrid. The original of the novel are some handwritten pages by Baroja that the writer passed to someone to be typed.
