..".does for Barcelona what Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown did for Madrid." Kevin Booth paints an expressionist portrait of the Barcelona night in a year of sex, drugs and deception. In 1990, having been awoken by the Spanish transition towards democracy, the city is metamorphosing into her future Olympic identity... Joaquim leaves his village to become a painter. Eduardo, educated between Canberra and the Costa Brava, is studying for his MBA. Despite their violently contrasting natures, they both fall under Celia's enigmatic aura. The games they are learning to play will draw all three into conflict - against the backdrop of a city that is also rehearsing a new identity - leading them inexorably towards the truth of Celia's Room. Told through their own eyes, the sensitive Joaquim and cynical Eduardo unveil a dreamlike city, peopled with ghosts from both their worlds. Discovering who they are will illuminate their own, their parents' and even the city's shadowy past. "Barcelona 1990: a blend of worlds and underworlds, a kaleidoscope of stories which interweave and fray apart, the sensation of imminent disaster... Will you be able to resist skipping to the last page?" - Estrella Ramon, writer. "Touching, engaging. Celia's room smacks you in the temples with a disjointed artistry that keeps you engrossed page after page." Dean Scurlock, writer.
