After 25 years of a picture-perfect marriage and life, an unplanned affair pushes Nora into a murky world of abuse and luxury prostitution. From there, she will have to face her deepest fears, in a journey that turns her world upside down. Sex without moral constraints will become the trigger for Nora to take back control of her own life. Explicitly influenced by Anaïs Nin’s Henry and June, and by the novels of Henry Miller, Iolanda Batallé also draws subtle comparisons between Nora and Lewis Carrol’s Alice – they both live in a dreamworld that makes them grow or shrink as they journey further into its depths. There’s even a nod to Alice’s white rabbit, in one of the book’s characters repeatedly appearing throughout the story, asking her the same question again and again: ‘Sure you’re not running late?’

  • Iolanda Batallé (Catalonia - 1971) might well have had a hundred lovers, studied literature at Berkeley, and lived on four continents. Whatever she did, a decade ago she said goodbye to all of it by writing this exceptional novel, I’ll Do Anything You Want; winner of the Prudenci Bertrana prize (one of the most prestigious literary prizes awarded to books written in Catalan). As well as being a writer, she is also a publisher. Batallé has founded and directed several publishing imprints, has been responsible for raising international awareness of the cultural projection of her country’s government, and she currently runs Ona - an emblematic bookshop in her home city; a house of culture and a house of literature. She has a son, a partner, a dog and lives in Barcelona.
