Félix left Spain to escape military service under General Franco. He arrived in Australia in the 1960’s and now, as an author, he writes about the Galicia of his memories and what it means to be a migrant. He says, of being a migrant, “Now I am no longer Spanish, but I can’t say that I am Australian. Some manage a measure of adjustment. Others deprived of their language, culture, and history, their material riches will not protect them from a life of social and spiritual misery”.
