Silvia Tarragona (Barcelona, 1957). She’s a journalist and writer. She currently runs and hosts the magazine ‘Amics i coneguts -Friends and colleagues-‘ each weekend on the Spanish national radio in Catalonia. Besides, she participates in the talk show ‘Amigues i conegudes” of TVE1, hosted by Inés Ballester. Her father taught her, since she was a kid, that in the world there were only two kind of people: those who become despicable while facing adversities, or those who become noble. She’s chosen to be a part of the second group. TAL I COM ÉREM (‘THE WAY WE WERE’) is her first novel.
