Read, write and resist

I like books, newspapers and anything written on paper from a very young age. Gay Talese, Truman Capote and Oriana Fallacci are some of the references with whom I have always dreamed of being able to travel in time and travel hand in hand.

I have always felt attracted to great journalistic investigations and to all those pen artists who have uncovered stories of international public interest. One carnival, I even dressed up as Kapuściński.

Right now I am in the process of publishing my first book, a historical investigation about María Ferrer Ferrer, my great-grandmother and one of the most mysterious and pioneering women of the Spanish Civil War. It cannot reveal anything else until next February 2024, when it will finally see the light of day thanks to Pol·len Edicions.

My life changed completely when I found out that Truman Capote wrote “In Cold Blood” in Palamós, a small town on the Catalan Costa Brava. My favorite author? J.D. Salinger. Not a week goes by without trying to find out if someone has leaked any of his new material.
