Muntaner, 38

38th Muntaner St. | Debate, 1997

» Jaen Novel Award 1996

A young boy watches changes take place in a reality which is flat and dull — modern times are about to come.

His mesmerizing voice will tell us of his neighbours; of an unknown Barcelona; of his father, a tailor and loser; of a suffocating atmosphere; of dreams never fulfilled and first loves... A novel which depicts the forgotten roots of our own times.
