Original Title: La força de la gravetat

La força de la gravetat is composed of seventeen stories that narrate and describe the reality of one main character: Catalonia. All the stories revolve around the daily fatality of life and deception; lightning hunters, workers, pyromaniacs and quacks, all of them characters without biography that drive realism to surrealism. The stories also prove that (in the words of the author) «The only way to understand ourselves is to nar­rate ourselves».
