Original Title: La bicicleta estàtica

The shipwrecks of maturity are the centre of this new collection of twenty short stories by Sergi Pàmies. Individual and collective fates, the ability to survive, and emotions of all sorts that are produced are treated in the obsessive, sober style that has characterised the author’s most recent books and have attracted thousands of readers. For the first time, Pàmies puts together fictions on the basis of autobiographical material and portrays the existential problems of characters who, with a determination that is as absurd as it is heroic, have the pluck to peddle without moving an inch.
