Read full description of the books:



A Thousand Morons, Quim Monzó's latest collection of short stories, is rife with very unfortunate characters. There's the young boy in "A Cut" who is upbraided by his teacher when he rudely shows up for class with a huge gash in his neck. And the prince in "One Night" who tries everything to awaken a sleeping princess - yet fails completely.

Seeing that this is a Quim Monzó collection, absurdity offsets the "moronic" sadness. Such as "Love is Eternal," which features a man who decides to finally overcome his commitment issues and marry his dying girlfriend, only to have everything backfire; or, "The Fullness of Summer," in which a family meticulously records every meticulous moment of their gathering.

An excellent combination of longer, elegiac stories of "morons," aging, and the passage of time with short, flashier pieces that display Monzó's wit and playfulness make this one of the strongest collections in the oeuvre of Catalan's short fiction master.


"Today's best known writer in Catalan. He is also, no exaggeration, one of the world's great short-story writers."
-The Independent

"A gifted writer, he draws well on the rich tradition of Spanish surrealism . . . to sustain the lyrical, visionary quality of his imagination."
-The New Yorker

TEDDY

Time flew unnoticed.

This story is going to be remembered for a long time.

HOLLIE

The book liked more than the previous

DANIEL

The most favorite book of all books

MATILDA

This is a very predictable author. When you get a book for free, you can read it. The intrigue is present, the unbundling is clear.
