Then he saw the barrel of a gun aimed dead on target - not at him, as he might have expected, but at the clergyman's back.

Set in a crumbling Spanish mansion, The House of Ulloa follows innocent and timid Father Julian Alvarez as he tries to turn the aristocratic owner away from drinking, womanizing and emptying the last of the family coffers. But his attempts end in disgrace and disaster in Emilia Pardo Bazan's brilliant novel, which seamlessly mixes realism with the gothic, and pathos with a rich vein of humour.

Emilia Pardo Bazán

The countess Emilia Pardo Bazan was born in 1851 and married at the age of sixteen.

But rather than following the usual path of an upper-class woman of the time, she became interested in politics and philosophy, separated from her husband, travelled widely, had an affair with the writer Benito Perez Galdos and started writing herself.

The House of Ulloa (1886) is generally considered to be her masterpiece. She died in 1921.
