Pol Guasch Napalm in the Heart recensie

  • “Pol Guasch creates an atmosphere that is menacing and powerfully dramatic, but he is also a poet who is interested in texture and rhythmic variation. This mixture gives his innovative and original novel a mesmeric voice, wonderfully captured in this translation.” (Colm Tóibín)

Flaptekst van de roman van de Catalaanse schrijver Pol Guasch

The arrival of a blistering debut voice in international literature, and a radical work of literary fiction-poetic, provocative, artful and singular.

In a deserted village, an unnamed young man waits for an opportunity to escape. Society has been militarised, the dead lie unburied and thugs patrol the land. As he waits, he marks the days that pass and writes to his lover Boris, with whom he shares an animal desire.

In a series of impassioned dispatches, Napalm in the Heart unearths what it means to survive when language and nature fail, to refuse to give up when everything is lost.

Pol Guasch is a Catalan poet and writer. His debut novel Napalm in the Heart was the winner of the 2021 Llibres Anagrama Prize and has been translated into several languages as well as being adapted for theatre and film. Guasch was awarded 42nd Revelation Award and the Eñe Festival Talent Award for his first novel. He has a Master’s Degree in Contemporary Literature, Culture, and Theory from King’s College London and is a PhD researcher on love and poetics at the Universitat de Barcelona.
