The best-selling books of the week (November 3, 2018)

The best-selling books of the week (November 3, 2018)


The Catalan dispute has reached such a dimension that not only the own actors of the same -Puigdemont, Forn, Borràs …- or journalists have addressed the issue. Historians are also turning their room to swords. José Enrique Ruiz-Domènec in its Report on Catalonia has glossed thirteen centuries of consensus and dissent. And now he is the great hispanophile John Elliott who contributes his contribution (Catalans and Scots) analyzing both nationalisms and pointing out possible ways of understanding for the two imbroglios. For the rest, in the rankings of this week of fiction highlights the irruption of the novel You will not kill of Julia Navarro, and the immediate success of the stories of Albert Espinosa, Endings that deserve a story. -S.C.
