London Under Snow is delicate, compact, mature and profound collection of short stories about winter by
Jordi Llavina. Six fragments of different lives in six different moment. In this beautifully written collection, the characters come face to face with their different lives and pasts, all of which are full of ghosts and
memories. Sensibility courses through each story, all of them written with a meticulous eye to detail and a
careful lyricism that pays tribute to the human condition and the society that we have created.
Bringing winter and Christmas celebrations in a variety of places and cultures to life in a selection of
beautifully written short stories, Llavina mixes personal experiences with fictional characters to blur the
lines between fiction and reality.
‘Llavina exhibits his great ability to successfully penetrate our psyches.’
Lluís Muntada, El País
‘Presided over by tenderness and truth, Jordi Llavina’s stories are beautiful, cathartic masterpieces.’
Anna M. Gil, La Vanguàrdia
‘The narrative fabric of these stories is the voice - sensitive, powerful, complicated and dedicated - that
Llavina creates for each of us. Almost personal, he whispers gently in our ears.’
Ramon Pla i Arxé, La Vanguàrdia
