Abstract: Carmen Laforet won the first Nadal book award of 1944 with her novel Nada. The award confirmed the young writer as one of the most prominent literary figures in the difficult years of the Spanish Postwar. In 1965, the United States government invited the author to visit the country. The broad and circular itinerary of the two-month trip allowed Laforet to observe not only the economic and cultural power of the U.S., but also some of the most controversial social issues in American society. The author described her trip in a series of chronicles published first in a weekly magazine and later in a volume entitled Paralelo 35 (1967). In Laforet's articles, there are significant references to Spanish exiles of the Second Republic who had settled in the U.S. after the Spanish Civil War. Carmen Laforet's interactions with these intellectuals present a more accurate and critical view of the Spanish Civil War diaspora.
