Between a deeply fractured family life, feelings of crushing loneliness, and long-term mental illness, twenty-four-year-old Carla is thoroughly disenchanted with life, and as a result, fascinated with the idea of ending it all. Life is meaningless, but despite this, she finds something resembling purpose in the world of cinema. Her love for the art of moviemaking keeps her alive - at least for the time being.
When Carla moves to Geneva for an internship, she is entering a new chapter of her life: a new career, new friends, new opportunities. However, she has no idea of what the future holds for her. Little does she know that this is the beginning of the end: a twisted rollercoaster ride of highs and lows that will find her at a breaking point.
A masterful debut, Force Majeure is a heartbreakingly poignant, yet razor-sharp and darkly witty glimpse into the reality of living with mental illness.

Graziella Montalbán

Force Majeure is Graziella Montalbán's debut novel. She lives happily in Albacete, Spain, with her tequila-loving grandmother and her two cocker spaniels - named Mia and Sebastian, of course - always ensuring she's in good company. She is also a frequent guest at the city's three functional movie theatres, to keep her out of touch with reality as often as possible. Graziella remains unwilling to halt her efforts of shunning spectators whenever they do not conform to her highly-set movie etiquette standards. It is expected this will lead her to the hospital or prison or both in the foreseeable future. She does not mind in the slightest.
