"Today's best known writer in Catalan. He is also, no exaggeration, one of the world's great short-story writers." --The Independent
"A gifted writer, he draws well on the rich tradition of Spanish surrealism . . . to sustain the lyrical, visionary quality of his imagination."--New York Times
"Monzó delivers drollery on nearly every page, in observations that are incisive and hilarious and horrifying, often all at once." --Publishers Weekly
"Monzó blends verve and precision in these stories while also posing bold philosophical questions." --Kirkus Reviews

A man tries to teach a stone to speak through sheer force of will. An engaged couple makes a pact to never lie, and their union dissolves immediately. Over the course of a phone call, a man learns that his girlfriend died months ago, and that hes been unknowingly seeing her twin sister. Prince Charming marries Cinderella, but then has an affair with the evil stepsisters. A psychopath's liver explodes after a night of heavy drinking, but instead of killing him, it allows him to be a better drinker.

These, and many more, strange and twisted characters populate the pages of Why, Why, Why?, a delectable brew of dark humor and biting satire on human relationships. In these stories, the characters dont start falling until they know theyre off the cliff. By then, rock bottom isnt a long way off. Another stunning entry from Catalans greatest contemporary writer, Monzós stories dust themselves off and speed on to their next catastrophe.
