This collection consists of selections of the vignettes published every Sunday by Jordi Labanda in Magazine of Barcelona´s Newspaper “La Vanguardia”.
The amusing compilation begins with five titles chosen by Labanda himself: Enfants terribles, Ella es así, Love is in the Air, La vida moderna, and El incredible mundo de los pijos.
Labanda’s ironic brush moves like a fish in water in portraying the intricacies of the female brain, the biting comments of children, the convulsive labyrinth of love, the turbulences of modern life, and the hallucinatory world of the pijos, or “the posh” (indispensable for fans and detractors alike).
Jordi Labanda was born some time ago in a faraway city with the name of a car, Mercedes (Uruguay), and has lived in Barcelona since he was three years old. Ensconced in his studio in the Barri Gòtic, he watches life go by.
