Galician Classic Launched

2 Apr 2012

Planet have launched an English translation by Craig Patterson of the Galician Classic by Eduard Blanco Amor,  A Esmorga  entitled  On a Bender.

With content previously suppressed by Franco's government,  On a Bender  (A Esmorga)  is the retelling of a fateful few days in the life of a raucous group of Galician men hell-bent on a drinking session.  On a Bender  is a legendary piece of Galician writing, and when it first appeared it helped to consolidate Galician linguistic resistance to Spain.
