Awarded the 1989 Nobel Prize for Literature, Camilo José Cela has long been recognized as one of the preeminent Spanish writers of the twentieth century. Journey to the Alcarria is the best known of his vagabundajes, Cela's term for his books of travels, sketchbooks of regions or provinces. The Alcarria is a territory in New Castile, northeast of Madrid, surrounding most of the Guadalajara province. The region is high, rocky, and dry, and is famous for its honey. Cela himself is "the traveler," an urban intellectual wandering from village to village, through farms and along country roads, in search of the Spanish character. Cela relishes his encounters with the simple, honest people of the Spanish countryside--the blushing maid in the tavern, the small-town shopkeeper with airs of grandeur lonely for companionship, the old peasant with his donkey who freely shares his bread and blanket with the stranger. These vignettes are narrated ina fresh, clear prose that is wonderfully evocative. As the New York Times wrote, Cela is "an outspoken observer of human life who built his reputation on portray­ing what he observed in a direct colloquial style."… (mere)

Con el morral a la espalda y la cantimplora sujeta a la hebilla del cinturón, el viajero recorre las carreteras y los pueblos de la Alcarria. Es el suyo un caminar lento, con mañanas de atmósfera limpia, mediodías calurosos y noches que se le echan encima, como con susto. De pueblo en pueblo el viajero va viviendo curiosos encuentros, minúsculas anécdotas y sorprendentes conversaciones que, impertérrito, transcribe con una suave prosa que aúna realismo, comicidad y ternura. Pero el viaje termina. El viajero dejó atrás la Alcarria con sus notas a cuestas y un algo de pena. A cambio, nos queda un libro que demuestra una de las más arraigadas afirmaciones de Cela: «El escritor, aun el que más sedentario pudiera parecer, es siempre un irredento vagabundo y ése es su mayor timbre de gloria y libertad».

This is a great book to read when feeling absolutely drained. ( )

The author, who won a Pulitzer later in life, recounts his travels in Spain's Alcarria region. He enjoyed talking to locals or doing things based on opportunity. The tale seemed to be as erratic as his planning for the journey had been. The narrative ended somewhat abruptly although some hints of its near completion appeared in the concluding chapter. The author consistently refers to himself in the third person as "the traveler." The construction seems odd to us now. While more modern forms of transportation existed--and the author did take a bus at one point--the locals mostly seemed to get around by animal-driven carts. I wonder what a modern traveler to the region would find. Perhaps the style appeals more to his original Spanish audience, but it lost its appeal through time or translation. Interesting tidbits of local color make it still worth reading, but one must slog through less interesting pieces to get to these gems. ( )

This short novel is a travelogue/memoir of a walking trip through the Alcarria region of Spain in the 1940s. It is interesting, but knowing little of the area or really of Spain in general, I couldn't really relate to it. The parts I found most interesting revolved around old buildings and current uses, and food. And the walking--I would love to take a trip like this, though Cela picked an area without many walkers. People were often trying to guess what he was doing there (traveling salesman?).

It did remind me of the tiny town in Italy my great-grandparents came from--the cemetery, church, old houses restored or rundown, old abandoned mill, etc. I would absolutley love to read something like this from there.

If you like/know rural Spain you might find this very interesting. ( )
