Presentation of the book "Siete aņos" by Peter Stamm

The Centre of Contemporary Culture of Barcelona and the publishing house Acantilado have pleasure in presenting the book Siete años (Seven Years – Acantilado, 2011). The author Peter Stamm and the writer Jordi Soler, from Veracruz, Mexico and now resident in Barcelona, will be speaking on this occasion.

Peter Stamm (Weinfelden, Switzerland, 1963), has emerged as one of the most singular voices of European letters in recent years and his prose has been compared with Chekhov, Camus and Hemingway. His novels Agnes (1998), Unformed Landscape (2003), On a Day Like This (2007), and the short-story collections Blitzeis (Ice Storm, 1999), In Strange Gardens (2006) and Wir Fliegen (The Flyers, 2010) have been translated into thirty-six languages and warmly received by critics around the world. Seven Years is a portrait of the life together of Alex and Sonja – a young couple of architects working together in their own studio after university – who are unable to bear the differences between them, moving between desire and rejection, cordiality and estrangement, anxiety and liberation.
