This month we’re celebrating authors participating in the Catalan Culture Spotlight at the London Book Fair in April. Each week, we’ll publish a new translation of a piece by one of the featured writers. We launch with Irene Solà channeling an overwhelmed widowed mother, and an illuminating interview with the author conducted by Madeleine Feeny. In later weeks, Eva Baltasar finds an idyllic relationship complicated by pregnancy; Marta Orriols observes a drunken woman ride the subway into memory; Sergi Pàmies shows life change shape in an instant; and Borja Bagunyà shadows a guest at the party from hell.
This special issue was made possible in part by a grant from Institut Ramon Llull.
