Julio Llamazares The Yellow Rain is an elegy to a forgotten village, a way of life, for a man who meets death long before it invites him to join it. Ainielle is a village in the Spanish Pyrenees that has become abandoned and derelict, no one lives there any longer except this one man who refuses to let go of the past and will experience his last years, months, days in a kind of slow, yellowing reality. Throughout the book, images of yellow and yellowing pervade, as everything succumbs to oblivion, a consequence of time passing and soon we are not sure if it is merely nature or the natural deterioration of an old man’s eyes, tainting everything he sees.

Julio Llamazares's elegy for Ainielle, told in a torrential emotional monologue by its last inhabitant, Andrès, as he prepares his grave, has become a modern Spanish classic since it was first published more than a decade ago. But many will find Andrès's tone almost comically histrionic. The village is desolate, the weather awful with the wind never quieting below a howl, so it comes as no surprise when loneliness drives his wife to hang herself.
