The Bodega (Review)

The Bodega (La Bodega) by Noah Gordon
Reviewed by Alex Canton-Dutari
When I chose to read this book I thought that Mr. Gordon was writing about the life of a Jewish person perhaps during the Spanish Inquisition. Was I in for a surprise as it turned out to be about people from Catalunya – northern Spain – perhaps during the aftermath of the Spanish Civil War.
If you are interesting in the history of vinegar and wine making in a small scale, this is a perfect source of heartbreaking information.
Though I read the book in Spanish, I am sure that the original English version must be perfect.
