The protagonist of this book (1907?1997) illustrates with simplicity a hundred years of history of a region, la Alpujarra, told through the eyes of a generous, brave and sincere character. Left motherless at the age of three, he overcame terrible events.

His son has compiled the events over dozens of years to create the emotive tribute this story leaves. At the same time, he describes with precision scenes and elements that are of unquestionable historical and cultural value.

Antonio Carmona Vílchez

Antonio Carmona Vílchez nació en un cortijo de La Alpujarra granadina el día 24 de
junio de 1942. Con ocho años comenzó a alternar la escuela con el pastoreo y con las tareas agrícolas propias de la década de los cincuenta. En 1965 ingresó en una empresa de comunicaciones, donde fue ascendiendo a distintos cargos. Durante el periodo 1977-1980 cursó los estudios de Graduado Social en la Universidad de
Granada.
A partir de 1998 dedicó buena parte de su tiempo a poner por escrito vivencias propias, testimonios ajenos y, sobre todo, la sabiduría profunda adquirida en años de conversaciones con su padre. Fruto de todo ello es Tiempos de candil, que recorre y alumbra con detalle la historia de sus progenitores y refleja cómo vivió la gente de la zona a lo largo del siglo pasado.
