This book explores a part of Europe’s cultural and social landscape that has until now remained largely unmapped: the exciting body of creative work emerging since the 1970s from contact between the small Atlantic country of Galicia, in the far north-west of the Iberian peninsula, and the Anglophone world. It traces the innovative mappings of Galician cultural history found in literary works by and about Galicians in the Anglophone world, paying particular attention to the community of ‘London Galicians’ in works by artists (Isaac Diaz Pardo), novelists (Carlos Durán, Manuel Rivas, Xesús Fraga, Xelis de Toro, Almudena Solana) and poets (Ramiro Fonte, Xavier Queipo, Erin Moure).
