- We can order this from the publisher
Set in the stark beauty of the Andalusian mountains El Hacho tells the story of Curro, an olive farmer determined to honour his family tradition in the face of drought, deluge and the lucrative temptations of a rapidly modernising Spain. Wonderfully crafted, El Hacho is a poignant and compelling story of struggle and hope.
Luis Carrasco lives and writes in Gloucestershire. He was inspired to write El Hacho after falling in love with the people and natural beauty of the Sierra de Grazalema whilst living in Andalucia. He is currently working on his second novel.

"El Hacho is a tiny diamond of a novel, told in a voice at once softly-spoken and fearless as hell. Luis Carrasco's writing is new to me, but he reads here as if he's been doing this for years; his control and restraint are masterly, and the end result makes for a cracking read." - Jon McGregor (Costa Book Award Winner 2017 - Reservoir 13)
