Barcelona Dreaming

ebook
A NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW EDITOR'S CHOICE
THE TIMES
(UK) BOOK OF THE WEEK PICK  
FOREWORD REVIEWS BOOK OF THE DAY PICK 
CONDE NAST TRAVELER BEST BOOK OF THE SEASON PICK 
Set on the eve of the financial crash of 2008, this evocative novel is made up of three stories linked by time and place, and also by the moving, unexpected interactions of a rich cast of characters.

 
Barcelona Dreaming is narrated, in turn, by an English woman who runs a gift shop, an alcoholic jazz pianist, and a translator tormented by unrequited love, all of whose lives will be changed forever. Underpinning the novel, and casting a long shadow, is a crime committed against a young Moroccan immigrant.
 
Exploring themes of addiction, racism, celebrity, immigration, and self-delusion, and fueled by a longing for the unattainable and a nostalgia for what is about to be lost, Barcelona Dreaming is a love letter to one of the world’s most beautiful cities and a powerful and poignant fable for our uncertain times.
