The pleasantness of Salvador Vendrell’s columns in ‘Levante’ have to presuppose a concrete cultural horizon: Catalan’s literature and culture experience in Valencia. Vendrell is, in fact, a camouflaged literary critic Catalan’s works, and in great part of his columns – most of which are in this book – are literary opinions that, without erudition, can be applied to know social reality or basic human psychology. As he possesses a rich collection of stories from our writers and artists, for to literary history and his personal experiences (Vendrell has the makings of deflâneu, vocation he makes use every time he can), he uses the literary corpus to understand and make understand universal aspects. The reader can arrive, for example, to marvel about how productive La Ribera is, culturally and literary, a microcosmos filled with good writers into whom Vendrell usually dives to feed his columns.
