“–Jo sí que em vaig equivocar –va fer ella al cap de mil silencis.

No es miraven perquè els feia por el dolor agut i fi dels esguards.”

Bosnia eta Viena, Treblinka eta Oslo, Katalunia eta Amsterdam... idazleak Eur

This aptitude for linguistics is especially apparent in Winter Journey in the way Cabre expresses dialogue, illustrates a character's inner thoughts, and descr
