Imma Monsó

Imma Monsó: As funny, ironic and intelligent as ever

The Fast Woman, her latest novel, will be published in French (Laffont), Italian (Rizzoli) and Hungarian (Holnap).

"I write to live. I write because it's a vice. I write to laugh. I write to reconstruct what I have lost so that I can find it again. I write to put things in place. I write to multiply life. I write to communicate better. I write to seduce. I write to love, to spark debate, really, I don't know. In short, I write for the same reasons that I read." Imma Monsó
