ANGELA VALLVEY made her reputation in her native Spain as a writer of young adult fiction with the popular The Sentimental Life of Bugs Bunny. She received the Jaen Poetry Award 1998 for her El tamano del universo (The Size of the Universe). This is her first publication in English. Vallvey lives in Spain.
"Vallvey's language is playful and inventive, the narrative well
paced and involving. But although the plot is full of shocking
little twists, it's Candela's voice that compels attention, more
than the events that surround her. Her questing nature finds
expression in funny and touching ways, making her an engaging
heroine." -Publisher's Weekly
"A humorous novel . . . worthy of an Almodovar film." -Elle
