Midday games of tennis, cheering on Barça from the stands of the Camp Nou, vermouths in Turó Park and afternoon shopping in the Illa Diagonal: this is the pleasant existence the businessman Amadeu Conill must sacrifice in the summer of 2007 to save his company, and even his life. El Cau de Conill is the troublesome tale of a prime example of the Barcelona bourgeoisie in free fall. This fi rst novel by Cristian Segura is an ironic look at human troubles and existential dilemmas as they affect the protagonist and his family, the Conill clan.
The story of an era coming to an end at the beat of globalization, which can also be read as a guide to Barcelona’s bourgeoisie.
