Napalm In The Heart by Pol Guasch

Napalm In The Heart by Pol Guasch


The arrival of a blistering debut voice in international literature, and a radical work of literary fiction-poetic, provocative, artful and singular.

In a deserted village, an unnamed young man waits for an opportunity to escape. Society has been militarised, the dead lie unburied and thugs patrol the land. As he waits, he marks the days that pass and writes to his lover Boris, with whom he shares an animal desire. 


In a series of impassioned dispatches, Napalm in the Heart unearths what it means to survive when language and nature fail, to refuse to give up when everything is lost.



"Innovative and original." - Colm Tóibín

"Unforgettable." -  Alejandro Zambra

"Pol Guasch must be one of the best young writers working today." -  Catherine Lacey
