Original Title: A favor del suspens

How would our infancy look to us if, as we searched for our identity, we turned our gaze backwards? Innocent or crude? Happy or atrocious? Halfway between the most naked ingenuity and the most implacable stare, Maurici Pla presents a world in which tenderness plays hide and seek with cruelty, audacity joins up with cowardice and violence sometimes becomes constructive.

Praises

«With unusual daring and taking risks, he makes his readers feel certain that they are entering a world full of novelty and bewildering effects, together with subterranean violence».
Ponç Puigdevall, Presència

«He uses a minimalistic style that is perfectly well ordered, in which everything fits perfectly together».
Ada Castells, Avui
