About Hispabooks

Hispabooks is a Madrid-based publishing house specializing in contemporary Spanish fiction in English-language translation. The list of titles includes rising talents and newcomers alongside established authors, many of them winners of the most prestigious Spanish literary awards and translated into many languages, and now for the first time into English.

Founded in October 2011 by Managing Director, Ana Pérez Galván, and Editorial Director, Gregorio Doval, at Hispabooks we pride ourselves on our expertise on the Spanish publishing market, a hallmark which enables us to pick first-hand those works of literary fiction which really make a difference and might resonate with an international readership. In collaboration with the best native English translators we are committed to introducing the work of contemporary Spanish writers to a global audience.

Spain is a country with a diverse and polyphonic cultural heritage, a real cultural melting pot. Its four co-oficial languages (Castilian, Catalan, Basque and Galician), along with the local tradition of each of its different regions form a rich tapestry with a truly varied literary offer.

Hence, our catalog aims to represent the whole range of voices in contemporary Spanish writing, the only prerequisite being that they are of unmistakable quality.

In brief, it’s all about good books and making them available for the first time to the English-speaking audience. We hope you enjoy our very unique offer.
