About the Author:

Álvaro Colomer (Barcelona, 1973) is a Spanish writer and a journalist. He has written works of fiction, non-fiction and contributes regularly to several Spanish publications. He has also co-written young-adult fiction books.

Jonathan Dunne translates from the Bulgarian, Catalan, Galician and Spanish languages. He has translated work by Tsvetanka Elenkova, Alicia Giménez-Bartlett, Lois Pereiro, Carme Riera, Manuel Rivas and Enrique Vila-Matas among others. He directs the publishing house Small Stations Press.

Review:

"Colomer has created an engaging narrator and the bewildered clarity of his voice is plausibly deadpan, while the blighted logic is precise, if unsettling. Julio is sarcastic and given to snapping, yet sympathetic because he is real. Whatever about what is happening, it is the way in which Julio attempts to make sense of it all that engages us. . . It will make you laugh out aloud and then weep silently before thinking long and hard. Colomer is a truth teller and his art is deliberate. Here is another Spanish novel to applaud."―The Irish Times

"Uppsala Woods is a book I really enjoyed, a gripping read and an entertaining and thought-provoking look at the effects of modern life on our will to live."—Tony's Reading List
