The House of Culture 'Emilio Sáez' hosts the presentation of the book 'And also lived' Caravaqueño Jesús López (31/01/2018)

The House of Culture 'Emilio Sáez' hosts tomorrow, Thursday, February 1, at 8:00 pm, the presentation in Caravaca de la Cruz of the book 'And also lived', written by the caravaqueño Jesús López García and published by the publisher Gollarin

The event will feature interventions by the author, the editor Francisco Marín, the illustrator Pascual A. Sánchez Salueña, the journalist José López Marín, the writer and professor of Literature María Dolores Pérez de la Hoyica, as well as the mayor of Caravaca de la Cruz , José Moreno Medina.

Recovering the memory of small abandoned villages and remembering the voices of those who occupied farms and fields that are now depopulated is the reason that led Professor Jesús López to write 'Y también se vivía'.

It is a nostalgic novel, in the words of its author, but above all "it is a personal tribute to the generations of grandparents who savored the time, raffled pillages in the mountains, suffered the shortage and went to the cities and left in the fields their wisdom".

The book is set in the Northwest mountains of Murcia and in the neighboring towns of Vélez Blanco (Almería), Puebla de Don Fadrique (Granada) and Letur or Nerpio, in Albacete, and is the result of more than a year of interviews with survivors. from that time, men and women with whom he talked in their homes and to those who put voice in the story.

The novel takes place today and is structured in a score of independent chapters that recreate the life of those years through a narrator, who travels the fields with an 'alter ego' and, while talking with him, tells anecdotes and forms of life today impossible.

Along with the obvious technological differences that have facilitated the work in the field and solved the communication problems of rural villages, 'And also lived' tells the ways that society had to relate to animals, with neighbors of the other slope of a mountain range or with the own climate.
