130 pp. 'Ainielle is a village high in the Pyrenees. Its houses are mostly deserted ruins and have been for years. Ainielle's last surviving inhaibtant, an old man at death's door, lingers on, and as the yellow rain of leaves flutter around him and the first snows of the year fall, he recalls the life he lived and the ghosts--once his friends and neighbors--who have taken possession of his solitude. Hailed on first publication and continuously reprinted in Spain, The Yellow Rain is a haunting ode the to power of memory, an elegy for a landscape and a way of life.'--from the jacket.
