Original Title: Vals

In a letter he wrote to José María Valverde in 1958, Gabriel Ferrater declared that Walz (1935) was the only really well-written novel in Catalan, the equivalent in prose of what Carner had been in poetry (“something like Carner in prose”). But, what is more, Waltz is also the result of the endeavour to create a novel more peculiar to our century than indebted to the standards of the previous one. Far removed from 19th-century realism, in our day it still appears to us with the persistent values of modernity. In 1936 it was awarded the Crexells Prize.
