'Magnificent ... Seen through Spanish eyes, Uncertain Glory - originally published in 1956 and now available in Peter Bush's superb English translation - was the first Catalan novel to depict the civil war from the defeated, republican side. Peter Bush and MacLehose Press have done a great service in reviving this Catalan classic' Maya Jaggi, Guardian.

'Wonderfully readable, with the vivid images of the physical world and everyday life that gives substance to fiction interspersed with sharp conversation, scatological philosophical rants and touches of (usually dark) humour, Uncertain Glory is a major novel that expresses the disillusion of a generation who fought a just war against fascism, but lost their idealism and youth' Michael Eaude, Literary Review.

'Uncertain Glory stands out as a lone monument among Catalan novels of the postwar period' Xavier Pla.

'To read his bravura novel is to feel part of the shouting, the opinions, the confusion, the half-baked arguments, the terror, the regrets. Sales has evoked a moment in time and Peter Bush's vibrant, multi-voiced translation had conveyed the energy, romance and the freshness of a masterwork that will seduce anew with its passion, humour, pathos and the all too-human spats of anger' Eileen Battersby, Irish Times.
