Nada, which means "nothing" in Spanish, is the first novel of Spanish author Carmen Laforet, published in 1945.
The novel is set in post Spanish Civil War Barcelona. The novel is narrated by its main character, Andrea, an orphan, who has fond memories of her well-off family in Barcelona, and has been raised in a convent in provincial Spain.
Nada was published in 1945 when LaForet was 23 and created a "sensation" in Barcelona when it came out. Nada won Laforet the first Premio Nadal literary prize in Spain. The book is considered to be an important contribution to the school of Existentialist literature of post-Civil War Spain.
