"Locos: a comedy of gestures “by Felipe Alfau

“Felipe Alfau was born in Barcelona in 1902. During the First World War he emigrated to the United States, where he studied music and was briefly a music critic for La Prensa, a New York newspaper in Spanish. Determined to adopt English as a literary language he finished Locos in 1928, but it was not until eight years later that he found a publisher; the novel was received without much enthusiasm.”

Taken from Barcelona Review.
