El vas de plata
The nostalgia of Sunday excursions, the desolation for the death of a friend, the disturbance of the senses when travelling away from home for the first time, the vertigo that causes the risk of mischief, the drunkenness of the first days of holidays. .. The exciting prints that compose the silver glass rescue from the memory different moments of the childhood and the adolescence of its protagonist, in some moving stories on the moral formation, on that "trip to the singularity that constitutes all adolescence". This sober and lyrical account of the sentimental education of its protagonist is also constitutive, as August Rafanell highlights in the epilogue, the epigone of a very neglected narrative tradition in Catalan. Twenty-two five years since its publication, El vas de plata has become a classic that endures in the reading memory and forms part of our own learning of pain and love.
