WHAT'S BARCELONA?
Publisher: : Ajuntament de Barcelona (2009)
ISBN: 978-84-9850-177-3
This trilingual book - published in September, 2009 - consists of fifty-one politically incorrect paragraphs about different aspects of the city of Barcelona, accompanied by photographs idem by Txema Salvans. The original texts are in English, and the Catalan and Castilian translations have been revised by the author. The paragraphs range in subject matter from high decibel levels to - among other things - sex, post-war atrocities, major literary figures, hideous sculptures, honest taxi drivers, traffic jams, the local Press, and the four types of police who patrol the city. There is a prologue by the writer MÓrius Serra and a kind of pre-prologue by the current Mayor of Barcelona, Jordi Hereu.
