"Writer, teacher and journalist. He is one of the most outstanding figures on the contemporary Catalan literary scene, working in children’s and young people’s literature as well as literature for adults."

He was born in Roda de Ter (Barcelona) in 1933 and took a teaching degree before graduating in Law, Philosophy and Letters and Journalism. He began to publish children’s and young people’s books at the end of the 1960s. They were successful among both public and critics. In 1988 he published his first novel, "Retrato de un asesino de pájaros". The publication of “Pa negre” sealed his place in the field of contemporary Spanish letters. It is a work about the tough post-Civil War years in rural Catalonia. The film adaptation with the same name was also very well received by critics. He is a frequent contributor to the media. He died in Barcelona in 2012.
