"With the break of day, I saw death. I was death reflecting in the water the face of a dead person."
I had never heard of the Catalan novelist Merce Rodoreda until reading a review of her novel "War, So Much War." The University of Rochester's Open Letter has been translating and publishing her books, including this posthumous novel, which is appearing in English for the first time. A lazy review might see the quote from Gabriel Garcia Marquez on the cover and be inclined to call this magical realism, but it has more in common with fabulists like Calvino and Rushdie. A good discovery.
