Spanish Culture behind Barbed Wire: Memory and Representation of the French Concentration Camps, 1939-1945 (2004)

2005 "Honorable Mention" recipient of the Modern Language Association's Katherine Singer Kovacs Prize for outstanding book published in English in the field of Latin American and Spanish literatures & cultures.  

  --"A remarkable research project on an important and neglected topic, this book makes public the record of Spanish refugees who had crossed the border following the Civil War, only to find themselves interned in concentration camps during World War II. It is impressive as a historical document, but it is also the work of a sensitive, analytical, and theoretically informed reader of literature. The combination of these elements and the diverse gifts of the author make the study spellbinding and moving, in short, an impeccable work of scholarship. Its historical and literary gap-filling merits close attention and acclaim."
