Recuerdos de mi familia. Josep María Mangado’s previously unpublished personal account of his family’s part in rescuing the diary of Baron Maldá called Calaix de sastre from destruction during the terrible times of the 1930s in Barcelona. His grandfather was instrumental in this rescue. That diary gives, for example, glimpses of Sor in Barcelona in his youth which I quote in my book on Sor. Free to read, here on this site.
