TANGRAM, Juan Carlos Márquez. (Thriller/Literary Fiction/Slipstream)     

See the catalogue page here, and download the press release here. Available December 2016

Tangram is a thriller, a fractured portrait   of our contemporary corruption that ranges from the Basque country to Reykjavík, from London to Calabria. 

A set of interlinked stories that combines and recombines into a series of possible narratives, each one giving its own perspective on a world built on deceit and damage. Apparently separate on the surface, they are shown to have far-reaching connections; to be, in many ways, pieces of a puzzle, highlighting the global nature of individual actions. Tangram was awarded the prestigious Euskadi Novel Prize in 2012. The judges highlighted Márquez’s ‘elegant, unvarnished’ style, his fine sense of irony and humour, and praised the novel as a ‘fractured mirror; a set of stories, pieces of a puzzle that combine to form a whole.’ The novel also won the Sintagma Prize, awarded by booksellers: in the words of the awarding committee, ‘Juan Carlos Márquez’s prose is some of the most carefully worked writing that it is possible to find. His novel is a literary game right from its title onwards, as it gives us story after story and sets us the enjoyable and fascinating task of reading them and putting them together.’ 

Márquez’s language is as incisive and precise as it is brilliant EL PAÍS

  In these stories Ángel Luis Sucasas  goes against the flow of conventional Spanish fantasy, and offers us the heightened vision of a powerful and singular imagination.
