In 1837, at the height of the Carlist wars, a young Prussian man named Rudolf von Wielemann heads South to fight for the "Order." Finding himself left behind in the ruins of an abandoned city destroyed by war, he tentatively navigates his new surroundings in which his sense of self begins to distort and transform. A novel on place and (un)belonging, The Others masterfully intertwines humor and tragedy to explore Wielemann's encounters with eccentric and enigmatic characters, and his unfamiliar surroundings. Garrigasait's precise and intricately constructed prose, interspersed by beautifully lyrical passages on music and nature, invites readers to delve into reflections on family, politics, and place.
