    Catalonia Reborn

    Posted by Sennen Cork on 30th Jan 2021

    I got this as a birthday present for my godfather, who is really interested in Catalan independence as he is a big Barcelona fan and goes to the city a lot (or at least he did, Before Covid). His New Years Resolution was to read more so I looked high and low for an interesting, leftist book about the struggle, and this fits the bill perfectly! He is chuffed with it! Thank you!
