Almudena Grandes died at the age of 61. The famous Spanish writer, also known for her political commitment, had revealed a month ago in the columns of the Pais that she had had cancer for a year. Born in Madrid in 1960, she gained the attention of the general public in 1989 with ‘The Ages of Lulu’, which the following year inspired the homonymous film by Bigas Luna starring Francesca Neri. Other famous titles produced in her career by Grandes were ‘I’ll Call You Friday’, ‘Human Geography Atlas’, ‘The Difficult Years’, ‘The Heart of Ice’ and ‘Kisses on Bread’. Some of these works have been brought to the big screen and have won prestigious prizes in Spain such as the Fundacion José Manuel Lara Prize 2008, the Prize del Gremio de Libreros de Madrid 2008 and the Madrid Critics Prize 2011.
