In 1974 Francisco Franco died. The Spanish people could finally begin openly discussing the legacy of the Spanish Civil War in order to build a future. However, in a country where repression was the norm until recently, how do you have a transparent dialogue? In 1975 the Paneros, an infamous literary family, aired a scandalous documentary about their lives that, in the decades since, has been interpreted as an attempt to answer this question. Shulman's amazing book chronicles the story of the Paneros, the treacherous twists and turns they navigated, as well as the impact of their now cult favorite documentary.
