‘A Woman Alone’ by Isabel del Rio

A Woman Alone is a memoir in English with quotes and excerpts in Spanish. It includes the fragmented story of a life lived between two countries, two languages, two cultures. With the spectre of the Spanish Civil War hovering over many of the recollections in the book, this memoir tells the journey from a chequered past in a fascist dictatorship to a hopeful if challenging future where the protagonist affirms her identity both as a woman and as a writer.
