When I Sing, Mountains Dance, by Irene Sola

Staff Pick

Translated from the Spanish, the award-winning Catalan writer's novel-in-stories features the Pyranees as both a setting and a character. Similarly, the book numbers ghosts, animals, plants, and inanimate objects, in a addition to humans, among its many narrators as it recounts the story of a family hounded by hardship and death. The struggles Sola depicts, however, encapsulate not just the horror of life in this legendary mountain range, but also its beauty, making it one of the most exciting books of 2022 so far.
