Original Title: Del tot indefens davant dels hostils imperis alienígenes

Quim Monzó’s newspaper articles are works of literature that are often a mere stone’s throw away from a short story. They are ironical, sarcastic or pessimistic, but they always provide a fresh look at the social, political and cultural cliches that surround us. Totally Defenceless Before Hostile Extra-Terrestrial Empires brings together the best articles that Monzó has published over the past few years in La Vanguardia, El Periódico and Avui. It is the latest of five collections of his articles: The Day of the Lord, Zzzzzzzz, The Turkish Suitcase, Hotel Intercontinental and I Won’t Plant a Single Tree. One after the other, these six books make up a diary that is uninhibited, a methodical and untypical chronicle.
