A novel about sexual identity, love, and desire.
As though in homage to Virginia Woolf’s Orlando, Ariel and the Bodies introduces a character who is seen first as a man, and then as a woman. First in a relationship with someone called Eugeni, a young man of twenty who loves him with great madness and confusion. After a terrible accident, with the car plunging into the void, Ariel disappears in a way impossible to understand. When she reemerges, she is treated as a woman by David, a sculptor who writes her letter after letter, though none of them reach their destination.
After publishing The Day David Bowie Died, Sebastià Portell confirms his literary talent with Ariel and the Bodies.
