El Gat recreates, from legend and fantasy, the life of Marià Seguí Calataiud, better known as the Otto Kitten. Roder feared and loved, a myth of the popular Valencian imaginary, which the author takes to denounce, with mastery, a certain irony and a nuance of a particular police story, the daily evils that manifested during the nineteenth century and, at the same time, in order to express in allegory the grotesque lie on which social facts are based. And one way or another, in the form of a whirlwind, the thoughts of the protagonist follow one another.
El Garrot Vil
The three stories that make up it are based on real characters of banditry in the Valencian Community. The author, Joan Guerola, as the bandits of this work, is a good connoisseur of the places he cites. Born in Otos, in the same village as the famous good bandit, he trod on familiar land: farmhouses and villages in the Costera, Vall d’Albaida and Comtat counties.
