«Psicología del personaje y estructura, suspense y reflexión, crítica social e intimismo, ambición formal y un “hablar llano” que tanto defendió en su día Cervantes: todo o todo lo que yo acierto a ver es equilibrio en la última novela publicada del autor catalán, y ya son muchas.» Banda, La Tormenta en un Vaso

What do you expect from a character called Barringa Barranga? This is a woman who, when she retired a long time ago, got into the habit of chewing Arbequine olives. We're in the Sant Antoni district in Barcelona, when life was still lived on the street.
