Debut of the year Andrea Genovart: "Today's society morally penalizes ambiguity and uncertainty"

"The horizon of the new narrators is not so much to point out certain ideas or theses but to put them in crisis or provoke a certain tremor. To point out the shadows and margins of reality. And I think it makes perfect sense to do so by challenging style," defends Andrea Genovart (Barcelona, ​​1993) on an idea of ​​literature that flows through non-normative, non-canonical channels, not considered in good taste.

Alba Giraldo Domènech is the narrator and absolute protagonist of Consumir preferentially, an acidic and unfiltered narration of the life of this young woman who is approaching thirty, is a designer, works in an advertising agency, although she studied Philosophy, and lives in Barcelona. . She responds to the characteristics of what is supposedly cool. Except that Genovart's novel goes beyond the appearance and shows the papier-mâché, which is not only Alba, but a large part of the context in which she lives.
