Winter Journey

A collection of stories by

With this highly original collection of short stories, Catalonian writer Jaume Cabre takes his place among the masters of the form. In Winter Journey, the reader encounters disparate and often desperate characters - pianist, cuckold, whore, organ builder, rabbi, priest, scholar, thief, hitman, madman, Holocaust survivor, oligarch, failed artist - who challenge notions about will, morality, and "the riddle of existence." This is not a selection of individual stories, but a singularly brilliant and enigmatic narrative, novelistic in its approach, with mysterious connections linking characters, objects, and ideas across time and place. The text takes the form of a Schubertian musical progression in prose, a philosophical mystery moving freely through a labyrinth of centuries and cities, historical and contemporary.

Richly allusive with its themes and motifs of music and art, Winter Journey will continue to provoke questions long after the reader has closed the book. This edition represents the first translation of Cabre's work into English and an invitation to many more readers to come along for the ride.
