Original Title: Guadalajara

“The details of observation are magnificent. The gesture of a character closing a mechanical door, a note in three sentences on the ambiance in a village bar, give life to stories in which the metaphorical or surrealist element has replaced entirely the depiction of local customs and manners. Monzó weaves the meditations of his characters in the manner of Kafka’s apologues, fusing convictions, presentiments and panic.”

Praises

«Each new book by Monzó is an event. Guadalajara is no exception».
Julià Guillamon, La Vanguardia

«What Monzó creates is not fiction, but metafiction, fiction piled upon fiction. He tells stories – with a neatness, a rhythm, an elegance and a capacity for masterly evocation – and at the same time he interrupts them, analyses them and comments on them».
Manel Ollé, Avui
