The Spain to which Norman Lewis returned after the war was much as he remembered it, much, indeed, as it had been since the time of Lorca. In the remote fishing village of Farol in Catalonia where he came to live, the men still lived their hand-to-mouth existence, their lives regulated by the sardine shoals of spring and autumn and the tunny fishing in the summer, while the women kept goats, arranged marriages and made ends meet. Voices of the Old Sea is a glimpse of the Mediterranean as it was before the sceneshifters and rich audiences moved in. Rich in anecdote and incident, it recreates a vanished shore as Lewis describes in sharp detail the lives of a proud and poetic people.
