Juan Linares:  I wrote a book on depression in Spanish, it came out in 2000. Shortly afterwards I decided to translate it into French and sent a copy of the translation to Philippe Caillé, a colleague I highly respect, who read it and saw that the translation was quite primitive . Philippe generously proposed to me to do the translation, I was very, very grateful to him.

Caillé always talked about his first visit to Spain, in Franco’s « hard » times, the initial ones, hard and dangerous, very austere. He had come to Spain with a girlfriend and he described the embarrassment since, to get a room in a hotel, it was necessary to show the marriage certificate.
