Barcelona Noir

Barcelona Noir

Author(s): Carmen Ospina Adriana V. Lopez

Location(s): Barcelona

Genre(s): Crime, Short Stories

Era(s): Various



Don’t be fooled – Barcelona, with all its illustrious colour and exterior finery, hasn’t always been able to curb its darker yearnings. Blame it on a bubbling, repressive concoction made with a pinch of Church, a touch of Crown and a large dose of General Franco to stir up the insides of its very independent and anarchic Catalonian spirit. Repression, vice, immigration – the 14 stories in Barcelona Noir will divert readers’ eyes from Barcelona’s lively Ramblas and Gaudi spires, opening them onto the city’s tainted side: one that will never appear on any tour.
