Rain Over Madrid is his latest work of fiction, now available in English-language translation.Rain Over Madrid is comprised by four novellas—“Fatherhood,” “Guile,” “Fidelity,” and “Shopping”—with a common leitmotiv: all of a sudden, someone is finally able to comprehend somebody else’s life.

By featuring totally divergent characters in different settings, Barba in these stories tackles issues such as death, the inability to communicate feelings, the sudden eruption of love, fascination for the other, the architecture of desire and the fear of happiness.“Andrés Barba needs no introduction.

He has his own intentional world perfectly contained and a literary gift that belies his age.” Mario Vargas Llosa“Barba has perfectly understood the aggressiveness that sometimes defines our romantic encounters and his precise prose provides the perfect vehicle to express it.” Times Literary Supplement“A new Spanish great, that’s all I need to say.” Lire
