The End of Sherry, by Bruce Berger, Receives Recognition

Posted on February 25, 2014 | in Member News | by

End of the SherryThe End of the Sherry, Bruce Berger’s account of Franco’s Spain as seen from a piano stool, has been declared a “groundbreaking book for February, 2014” by Independent Publisher. The End of the Sherry recounts what happens to a young American who finds himself abandoned in southern Spain in 1965 with a dog and a dubious car, stumbles into work as a nightclub pianist, and stays for three improbable years. His own adventures blossom into a portrait of Spain toward the end of the Franco dictatorship – bleakness that breaks into unexpected hilarity even as the author discovers his calling as a person and as a writer. His return to Spain after the death of Franco puts it all into perspective. Read the full review here.
