BARCELONA DEMÀ O AQUESTA TARDA
A satirical novel, of social criticism, that imagines the future of a Barcelona assaulted by the tourist fever.
What do an architect from the Olympic Barcelona, a fishmonger from La Boqueria, an editor from the Upper Diagonal, an immigrant who disguises herself as a Disney princess to make a human statue on the Rambla or a priest of the Sagrada Família have in common? The answer is that they are tired of Barcelona being the great tourist destination, a city at the service of outsiders who no longer recognize or feel like their own. And what would happen if these characters, so different, but typically from Barcelona, one day decided to stop complaining and join forces to make a project of transformation of the city much more radical than the Olympic Games?
BARCELONA DEMÀ O AQUESTA TARDA is a resoundingly original and seemingly simple story, but full of nuances and plot twists, which with a fast pace and clear and concise language catches the reader from the first page. A satirical and parodic story that can also be read as a disturbing dystopia.
