PARACUELLOS gives comics the transformative power of truth telling

From a rave review of Paracuellos by Barbara Bryce Morris in Public Books:

“Paracuellos, in the original and in Sonya Jones’s skillful translation, claims the authority of the oppressed and gives comics the transformative power of truth telling. Published soon after Franco died, the comic strips brought to the national consciousness an era that had been suppressed in official franquista histories. In retracing the abuses of the period, Paracuellos reveals the tensions around contested versions of history that still occupy political debates in Spain.”
