Short Fiction from Catalonia : New and Improved

Empar Moliner (Barcelona, 1966), once an actress, is currently a very popular journalist who contributes to El País, Catalunya Ràdio and even late-night television talk shows. Her journalistic chronicles, written with the same corrosive style of her short stories, have been recently collected in an anthology, which has also been a success with both critics and readers. I Love You when I'm Tipsy has been awarded the Lletra d'Or, one of the most acclaimed honours of Catalan literature.
