A Review in a Thousand

We've had a barren spell in terms of reviews recently - in terms of new books anyway. But in today's Independent there is one well worth waiting for in praise of Enormity of the Tragedy -
see it here

As the review says, author Quim Monzó has been translated into many languages and we had a feeling that we might have stumbled on to something when we found that after nearly 20 years there STILL wasn't a book of his in English. Well, blimey, according to reviewer Michael Eaude he is one of the world's great short-story writers too but have a look at the review which takes in another Catalan work and gives you an insight into the vibrant literary scene in Catalonia...

And Saludos to Quim Monzó and translator Peter Bush!
