The Bullfighter – Kelvin Robertson

Edited in April 2021 and a harrowing read in parts, this is a fascinating tale.

A boy from one of Seville’s poorest barrios lives for bullfighting. It is a passion that consumes him and one day he gets his chance to live the dream. However, fame and fortune do not necessarily bring happiness and a love affair almost destroys him. Forces conspire to drive him away and he becomes a raw recruit fighting in Spain’s African war. The hardship, the trials and tribulations of fighting in Morocco change him and it is a very different young man who finally returns to the bullrings of Andalusia.
