La quincena soviética

Vicente Molina Foix recreates the atmosphere in Spain at the end of the 1960s.

"La quincena soviética", published in 1988, is Vicente Molina Foix's most famous novel. He is a writer and filmmaker belonging to the so-called "Novísimos".

The novel contains autobiographical information and tells the story of the life of a Communist activist from Burgos, living in Madrid in the 1960s, who is trying to discover and define his own identity. According to the author, the novel stemmed from a previous story with the same title, about a group of Spanish Communists. Some of the elements in this story were used in the final novel, such as the first person plural as a narrator, alternating with the first person singular.

The novel was given the Herralde Award in 1988.
