Barbarita: La novela galate de Gibraltar (Inaki Irijoa Lema and Jose Juan Yborra Aznar)
Barbarita – ‘La novela galante de Gibraltar'. Researchers Jose Juan Yborra and Inaki Irijoa, have published this investigative book which recalls the work of Gibraltarian journalist and writer Hector Licudi, in his first and only book "Barbarita". First published in 1929, the book was intended to be a romantic fictional novel, based on real events in Gibraltarian society, but the events were considered too close to reality and resulted in Licudi's exile from the Rock. Therefore, this book explores the life of Hector Licudi and what these authors call a "forgotten and marginalised" novel.
