Lucia Graves
The Memory House

Lucia Graves was born in England in 1943, but was taken to Mallorca (Spain) by her parents in 1946, after the end of WWII. She studied in Switzerland, England and Spain and graduated in Modern Languages from St. Anne’s College, Oxford. She is the daughter of Robert Graves, the writer, and has translated many of his works into Spanish and Catalan. She had three daughters by her first marriage, and lives now with her second husband in London. Aside from her many translations, she has written articles and book reviews, and, more recently, an autobiographical book called A Woman Unknown: Voices from a Spanish life. Her first novel, The Memory House, was published in Spain, and now appears in English.
