Bite the AppleRequest more information
Original Title: Mossegar la poma
Bite the Apple is a collection of thirty-seven short stories about love and its partner, unlove. They are all the same length, and they share the pleasure of those who have found love and the diffuse sadness of those who do not know how long it will last, as well as the stimulus of those who come across the unexpected. Bite the Apple is a sentimental chronicle, but also an exercise in the possibilities of the story and of the partner. Precise, subtle and concise, Serés once again displays his literary skill.
«On the subjects of love and couples it would be hard to find a novel that outdid the 37 short stories that Francesc Serés has included in Bite the Apple».
Ricard Ruiz Garzón, El País
«Brilliant and enlightening, tacitly wise and nearly always ironical, but without satire; humorous, but not vulgar».
Jordi Gracia, El País
«One of the most potent voices in Catalan narrative».
Carles Geli, El País

Jordi Llavina, El Punt Avui
