Barcelona Dreaming

Barcelona Dreaming

Set in Barcelona in the years leading up to the financial crash of 2008, these poignant interlinked stories follow ordinary people whose lives will be changed forever.

Like Robert Altman’s film Short Cuts, Barcelona Dreaming is made up of three interconnected stories that are bound by time and place, and by the way characters weave in and out of them. A crime that remains unreported in one story has light shed on it in another.

Exploring addiction, celebrity, racism, immigration, pornography, and self-delusion, Barcelona Dreaming has the feeling of a modern fable, underpinned by a longing for the inaccessible and a nostalgia for what is about to be lost.

Reviews

Elegant and electrifying. Thomson's prose is sparse, yet so highly charged that I couldn't stop reading. I love all his novels - but this one is my new favourite.
