HP Lovecraft in Bunk Tamarit

Elena Bartomeu

‘Fòrvid’

(Weeds, 2021). 282 p. 18 euros.

What Elena Bartomeu tries in her first novel is not easy, because she bases the terrifying effect of a story written on a sound phenomenon that we obviously cannot hear as we read. Film Producers: Here’s a good argument for making a horror movie. Despite this handicap, the author comes out of it and installs the reader in an uncomfortable area, which is one of the goals of any writer: Bartomeu is one of them, because he has a world of his own and proposes it. That the style and language of the book grinyolin is a minor problem (and that they could have helped diminish those responsible for editing the book), but the originality of the story, the unique atmosphere of certain passages in the book and the philosophy behind a plot that is still that of home history enchanted by the presence of a monster, become Forvid in a special and different book. Marginal in the most positive sense of the word.
