The Seven Deadly Sins is an ambitious project bringing together seven of the most exciting, vibrant voices in Catalan literature to write essays on what are perhaps the most enigmatic—and least understood—aspects of religion and morality. Drawing from many different sources, the essayists tell each sin’s story and origin in their own unique way to produce a collection that is frequently hilarious, and always entertaining and informative. In Mara Faye Lethem’s stunning translation, these are essays that can be enjoyed as part of a whole or individually.
Raül Garrigasait, Jordi Graupera, Oriol Ponsatí-Murlà, Marina Porras, Anna Punsoda, Adrià Pujol, and Oriol Quintana are some of the most promising new writers and intellectuals working in Catalonia today. Coming from various backgrounds, these award-winning writers encapsulate the dynamic social and cultural movement that is the current literature scene in Catalonia.
