Praises

«Perverse and ill-willed characters are those created in his short stories by the talented young Catalan writer Quim Monzó… Monzó has read Kafka… and also takes in the rich tradition of Spanish surrealism, both for its deliberately paranoic sense of the threat contained in apparently ordinary things… and because he is capable of maintaining the quality of his imagination, at times lyrical, at others, visionary».
The New York Times, Nova York

«Quim Monzó is recognised as one of the most provocative voices in current European literature… Monzó’s short stories are the best to have been produced in Europe over the past decade, a view with which Americans who know about foreign narrative will undoubtedly agree».
World Literature Today, Oklahoma
