A young boy racked by hunger participates in his family’s disgrace and, hardened prematurely by what he has endured, narrates this dark story about men and what they’re capable of. In this dramatically intense novel, the bread boy tells the story of life before, during, and after the Spanish Civil War in his small town in Andalusia, speaking for his siblings, parents, grandparents, and neighbors.En los días que siguen a la victoria franquista en un pueblo de Andalucía, la paz es sinónimo de venganza, humillación y sumisión para los vencidos.

En esta novela de gran intensidad dramática, el niño pan cuenta el antes, durante y después de la guerra civil española en su pequeño pueblo de Andalucía, hablando por sus hermanos, padres, abuelos y vecinos.
