The starting point of this novel is a question, a simple question formulated by the mature voice of its main character, Martí Zuviría: “what impels a man to fight when he knows himself to be weak? Why do the weak fight the well-armed and powerful? Why do the small resist the big? He knows the answer, he will give you the answer, but you will have to put up with three chapters and more than five hundred pages of good reading.
