An afternoon in Geneva

AN AFTERNOON IN GENEVA

In 1973, towards the end of the Franco regime, the famous catalan writer Mercè Rodoreda bumped into the literary critic Josep Maria Castellet in Geneva where he lived exiled and invited him to tea at her house. The writer was a most discrete person and maintained everything that concerned her wrapped in secrecy. Indeed he herself had become a secret or perhaps, even a maker of secrets. However that afternoon, strangely, he opened up and shared many intimacies.
