Splendour and Glory of the International DupeRequest more information
Original Title: Esplendor i glòria de la Internacional Papanates
Rather than simply a collection of divers articles by Quim Monzó, this volume of articles written between 2001 and 2004 – both before and after the Iraq War – is in fact a coherent and unified book, a brilliant, lucid chronicle of the tragedy and of who knows whether the irremediable access to power of the plasticine empire. Splendour and Glory of the International Dupe is a comic denunciation of the incongruence of politicians, of fraud and of the nature of a great part of public life and of the ascendancy of poses.
