This debut novel by Jesus Carrasco can best be described as a Spanish version of "The Road." In a nameless country, a boy wanders across a desolate, possibly post-apocalyptic landscape, eventually meeting up with a kindly, elderly goatherd. Like "The Road" it has the feel of a fable, although it's not quite as bleak as McCarthy.
