'Innovative and original.' Colm Tóibín'Unforgettable.' Alejandro Zambra'A punk novel with prose as mysterious as it is beautiful.' Nicole Flattery 'Pol Guasch must be one of the best young writers working today.' Catherine LaceyThe arrival of a blistering debut voice in international literature, and a radical work of literary fiction-poetic, provocative, artful and singular.

In a deserted village, an unnamed young man waits for an opportunity to escape. Society has been militarised, the dead lie unburied and thugs patrol the land. As he waits, he marks the days that pass and writes to his lover Boris, with whom he shares an animal desire. In a series of impassioned dispatches, Napalm in the Heart unearths what it means to survive when language and nature fail, to refuse to give up when everything is lost.
