This book, with a prologue and illustrative photographs by Gerardo Piña-Rosales, is the first anthology dedicated to gathering samples of the literary work of a select number of Spanish narrators and poets who resided — and in many cases still reside — in the U.S., from 1939, after the Spanish Civil War, to the present time. Included are poems and stories of exiled writers such as José Ferrater Mora, Manuel Durán, Roberto Ruiz, and Elena Castedo; writers from the so-called period of intellectual emigration of the 1950s and 1960s — among others, Germán Bleiberg, Ildefonso-Manuel Gil, José Luis S. Ponce of León, Victor Fuentes, and Matilde Albert Robatto; and works by the later generation of Spanish writers, including Gonzalo Navajas, Jesus Torrecilla, Gerardo Piña-Rosales, Hilario Barrero, Dionisio Cañas, Tina Escaja, Carlos Perellón, Ignacio López-Calvo, Santiago García-Castañón, Fernando Operé, Alberto Acereda, Francisco Alvarez-Koki. The volume provides a brief bio-bibliography of each author. Gerardo Piña-Rosales is a professor of Hispanic and Luso-Brazilian Literatures at the Graduate Center.
