The author once told me: “essays try to explain reality, novels are about the truth of life. Read novels.”
“Jo confesso”, originaly written in Catalan language, afterwards translated to many others, is a masterpiece of a great novelist. A voyage through time and different places full of “truths of life”. It has touched me deeply.
