Portrait Irene Solà
Irene Solà [© Oscar Holloway]

Imaginative and poetic, Irene Solà tells of life and death in a mountain village in the Pyrenees. Not only people have their say; the author also gives a voice to animals, plants and the mountains. »This book is a true miracle. A many-voiced choral song, so full of imagination and life that one feels enveloped and enchanted while reading, as if transported to another plane of reality« [SZ]. The novel was awarded the European Union Prize for Literature in 2020.
