Partial biographies offers a pleasant, ironic and insightful view of the recent history of the País Valencià. This new book collects the literary portraits of six characters who were born before the war that took place from 1936 to 1939: the politician and painter Doro Balaguer, the chaplain Josep Antoni Comes, the literary critic Josep Iborra, the historian and art collector Pere Maria Orts, the philologist Germà Colón and the geographer Vicenç Rosselló. Throughout the story of individual adventures, the fatal mess of the Civil war, the misery and the lack of perspective during the post-war period, the emergence of the tourism business, the attack against libraries in the 1970’s… are narrated.
