Partial biographies narrates a series of life pathways. It also offers, in a certain way, a vision of the history of the País Valencià in the last decades of the 20th century and the first ones of the 21st century. This new book brings together the biographies of the actress Pepa López, the literature professor Dominic Keown, the editor Vicent Olmos, the archaeologist Ferran Arasa, the soprano Enedina Lloris and the journalist Vicent Partal.
All the characters of this book were born between 1951 and 1960. Their biographical ups and downs, thus, “have been confined by facts themselves: the end of the General Franco's military dictatorship, the tricks of the so called Transition, the neoliberalism boom, the recovery of the self-government, the fall of the Berlin Wall…”
