Original Title: Sentimental

“The man who, a moment ago, said: ‘I’m just going out to buy some tobacco’, will never go home again” is the first sentence of a story that cobines drama, comedy and action in order to describe the eventful experience of a man who runs away. The exciting rhythm and the use of fantastic elements, which contrast with the precise and realistic prose, grab the reader, who follows the main character’s ups and downs with a mixture of stupefaction and angst. In Sentimental, Sergi Pàmies takes to their limit the qualities that have been unanimously recognised in his previous books, offering us a fascinating novel, with its brilliant changes of scenery and its profound account of states of mind.
