Antònia Carré-Pons (Terrassa, 1960) is a writer and mediaevalist philologist.
"Personality is complex and our ego sometimes hides multiple, more or les unconscious manifestations. This is why I think that a lot of people have something akin to heteronyms", she says.
Her public life as a writer began at the turn of this century with the publication of the novel for young people titled I què faràs ara, Clara? (And What Are You Going to Do Now, Clara?), which was published in 2001. In 2005 her Abecedari ignot (Unknown ABC) appeared, this being a collection of prose poems showing a very different facet of the author's creative voice. In 2010 she published Jo també vull ser funcionari (I Want to Be a Functionary Too), a satirical novel that opens up the way to a new literary genre. In 2014 she published the novel Rellotges en temps de pluja, in 2015, És l'amor que mou el cel i les estrelles, a historical novel, and in 2016, L'aspiradora de Ramon Llull, a novel about Llull, planned obsolescence and couple relationships.
"The really important things slip past us in silence and there are no discoveries that do not come from within."
She is a member of Associació d'Escriptors en Llengua Catalana (AELC – Association of Catalan Language Writers).
