THE THINGS WE'VE SEEN, a novel in three parts, is Agustin Fernandez Mallo's most ambitious and accomplished novelto date. A writer travels to the small, uninhabited island of San Simon, used as a Franquist concentration camp duringthe Spanish Civil War. There, he witnesses events which impel him on a journey across several continents, chasing thephantoms of nameless people devastated by violence.
In the second part we meet Kurt Montana, the fourth astronautwho secretly accompanied Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins on their mythical first voyage to the moon. Now living in Miami, an ageing Kurt revisits the important chapters of his life, from serving in the Vietnam War to hismemory of seeing earth from space. In the final section, a woman embarks on a walking tour of the Normandy coast withthe goal of re-enacting, step by step, the memory of another trip taken years before.
