Original Title: La maleta turca

“Monzo’s articles are an urgent, ironic diagnosis of acquired social behaviour, of what we do unthinkingly, of what largely characterises our way of being in the world… In La maleta turca (The Turkish Suitcase) there is, first of all, good literature.”
Josep M. Lluró, El Temps

La maleta turca (The Turkish Suitcase) hits out at what we take for granted, at the vulgarity and idiocy that surrounds us every day, often passing us by without our even noticing.”
Antoni Mateu, Avui

“Monzó links up with an almost completely lost Catalan tradition of journalism, connecting him with such accomplished people as Eugeni Xammar, Francesc Trabal, and Josep Pla himself.”
Jordi Puntí, La Marxa
