Andreu Gomila (Palma, 1977) is a poet, novelist, literary and theatre critic and cultural journalist, specialising in the performing arts. He has directed the weekly TimeOut Barcelona from 2010 to 2017.
This is how the author is defined from the pages of TimeOut Barcelona:
"I have published four books of poetry ('Un dia a l'infern dels que són', 'Diari de Buenos Aires', 'Aquí i ara' and 'Carrer dels dies') and a novel ('El port. No serà res de mi'). I've benn translated into Spanish, Estonian and Croatian. I have been involved in a multitude of cultural movements, I have lived in Buenos Aires and I have set foot halfway around the world. I don't believe in God nor do I care. I believe in individual revolution as the only way to survive the absurdity of this world, as Camus said. I am European, Catalan and Mallorcan. And felanitxer (from the town of Felanitx, Mallorca) of spirit."
In the list, we can add a second novel, titled Continents, and the musical essay Putes himnes generacionals, written with four hands with Marta Salicrú. Her poems have been translated into French, Serbo-Croatian and Estonian, and into Spanish in two anthologies: Los versos de los acrobatas (Paraíso Perdido, Mexico, 2005) and Los perfiles de Odiseo (Calambur, Spain, 2007). He has edited the books La forma d'un sentit (Empúries, 2015) by David Carabén and El dolor de la bellesa (Empúries, 2017) by Roger Mas. He has translated Cioran's De l'inconvénient d'être né, which will be published in September 2019.
