A Thousand Morons by Quim Monzo

Synopsis

A Thousand Morons is rife with very unfortunate characters, like the prince whose kisses are ineffective in waking the sleeping beauty. An excellent combination of longer, elegiac stories of "morons," aging, and the passage of time—with short, flashier pieces displaying Monzó's wit and playfulness—makes this his strongest collection.
