So who is Toni Sala? Well, for starters, the influential newspaper La Vanguardia said of him that “during the last 15 years, Catalan literature has produced
few voices of such strength.”
He’s regarded as one of the leading Catalan authors, and The Boys was hailed as a masterpiece upon its release in 2014, winning the Premis de la Crítica, the most prestigious award in Catalan writing.
And what is this book, you ask? Toni Sala’s The Boys is a profound story of how the deaths of two young men change the lives of four individuals. With intricate meditations worthy of Javier Marías, and dark, existential plots reminiscent of Michel Houellebecq, Toni Sala’s English-language debut should put him into the company of the best world writers.
