Sleeping Voice by Dulce Chacón
La voz dormida (Sleeping Voice) is a work by Spanish female author Dulce Chacón. Set in Spain in the aftermath of the Civil War, it features a group of women prisoners at Madrid’s Ventas jail who fly the flag of dignity and courage as their only weapon to combat humiliation, torture and death. In the words of the author, “It is a story set in times of silence which narrates the suffering of women who lost a war, and the agony they endured without knowing what was to become of them”. The play is based on true stories, which have been toned down by the author, who has also added some new elements. The book, published in 2002, was Chacón’s last novel and was voted Book of the Year in 2003 by the Booksellers’ Guild at the Madrid Book Fair.
