Original Title: Dissabte a les fosques
The painter Gabriel, the main character in this novel, is not really an artist. He his more of a metaphysician who is obsessed with the creative process. Saturday in the Dark describes for us seven days in the life of a creator tormented by angst, blockage and the titanic effort to break the implacable skin that separates him from the world outside and from a woman whom he will never be able to satisfy.
«Maurici Pla very properly goes for simple language and for a style devoid of excesses and contrivance».
