Figures de calidoscopi

Quaderns Crema, 1989

Synopsis

(Kaleidoscope Figures) Love, health and work are the threads with which life weaves biographies. But they are always interlaced with an invisible strand, an enigmatic travel companion: chance. This is a novel about funny little coincidences, fortuitous meetings, no-shows and the hidden strikes that the wheel of fortune reserves for Isabel Corbella, who at sixteen years of age, interrogates herself about the future while looking in the mirror. Like a reflection on luck and the nature of human relationships, Ramon Solsona presents us with Kaleidoscope Figures, a surprisingly skilful novel in which heterogeneous materials appear intertwined in a solid and coherent structure. A work that captivates, through the absolute fluidity with which the author handles a great diversity of linguistic registers and formal resources.
