A short story by Jaume Cap Frau about remembrance and oblivion. Translated from Catalan by Graham Thomson. Also available in Spanish (translated by Haroldo Maglia).

I am forty two years old, life pursues me every day and pushes me on, no doubt towards death and oblivion. That’s the way it is and there’s nothing I can do but regret it when I think about it. If I don’t think about it it isn’t because I believe I have managed to settle myself and gain a period of tranquillity. On the contrary, I feel I have deceived myself and wasted my time in vain hopes...

The man who starts my dreams

La trama es buena, atrapa... pero se pierde el final muy difuso. De 1 a 10 = 7,5.

Javier Rubalcaba
The man who starts my dreams

No havia llegit res de Jaume Cap, per amb L’home que em comena els somnis n’he tingut prou per comprar algun llibre seu. Em recorda a Pere Calders. Genial.

Francesc Colomer
The man who starts my dreams

(This opinion is about Jaume Cap, not about a particular work.) s un escriptor amb un gan domini dels recursos lingstics i d’una gran riquesa lxica. Juga amb els significats i descriu minuciosament els personatges a travs del seu comportament. s un mestre en la interpretaci de fets quotidians, la qual transpua una finssima ironia. Els seus personatges sn individus d’aparena normal, sota la qual, tanmateix, apareix la complexitat dels processos mentals humans.

Jaume Rossell
