“All happy families are alike, each unhappy family is unhappy in its own way” is a phrase that underlines the importance of the concept of family and its dynamics throughout the history of literature. The family is the first contact that human beings have with others, and this very fact is what makes it a source of literary inspiration for Eva Baltasar, Sara Mesa and Eider Rodríguez, three authors who examine family dynamics and portray the intricate weaving of power relations between their members.

From different literary geographies that unfold in Catalan, Basque and Spanish, three of the most significant authors of their generation speak with journalist Andrea Gumes of the centrality of the concept of family in their works.
