Original Title: L'instint

The Instinct is the story of a little village whose electricity is cut off. Around this accidental and fantastic event, the novel brings together tales that uncover a fauna of varied characters who are struck by adversity. With an efficacious and captivating style, Sergi Pàmies portrays the grandeurs and the miseries of an imaginary village where the people, the river, the animals, the plants and the objects all share the same degree of importance in the development of the narrative. Without allowing concessions or any surrender of tenderness, once again Pàmies surprises us with a story that is, to all appearances, straightforward, in which every detail contributes in a decisive way to the ending.
