NO ESCRIURÉ LA TEVA HISTÒRIA
When Dylan regains his consciousness on the side of a Californian desert road after a motorbike accident, he doesn’t know what happened to him, why he is barefoot or where Sarah, the girl who was with him, is. Nor does he suspect that the answers to these questions originate almost a hundred years ago, on a farm in Oklahoma… No escriuré la teva història embraces three generations of the Pont family, from the 1920s to shortly before the coronavirus crisis, and the conflicts and dramatic circumstances in which they live, which today mark the tense and electric reunion between the last descendant, Dylan, and his mother.
Laia Fàbregas’s long-awaited fourth novel takes us to an unknown and unusual America, largely to the shores of California’s immense and enigmatic inland lake, the Salton Sea: non-existent at the beginning of the twentieth century, a desert paradise in the 1960s and today an almost apocalyptic place. And it tells us of two opposing journeys, the journey of the Pont’s from Oklahoma to California in search of a future and Dylan’s journey towards his past, to discover who he is. Two journeys that collide in the dramatic history of a complex and singular woman, the unforgettable Patsy Pont.
