A brutally powerful, unflinching account of the heroin epidemic that swept across Catalonia in the 1980s, Wild Horses tells the story of a group of friends as they buy, sell, and consume heroin and other drugs in their hometown. Told through a kaleidoscope of voices, stories, song lyrics, and heartbreakingly all-too-real characters, Cussà’s novel, originally published in 2000, is already a true classic of modern storytelling that is both shocking and captivating at the same time.
Having lived through Catalonia’s heroin epidemic, JORDI CUSSÀ (1961–2021) turned his talents to writing plays and, later, novels. He is considered one of twentieth-century Catalonia’s most important writers.
