Juan Goytisolo, Anti-Franco Spanish Novelist And Political Essayist, Dies At 86

Goytisolo won Spain’s Cervantes Prize in 2014 and, despite leaving Spain in 1956, was still quite immersed in Spanish literary life. Although he wanted “to leave behind the traditional forms of the Spanish literary culture, Cervantes was his guide, as were the classic nonconformists who broke the language and the conventions of the novel, poetry or theater.”
