Eva Baltasar (Barcelona, 1978) studied Pedagogy, a profession that she has combined with writing, which she maintains as her main activity. She made her debut with the book of poems Laia (Miquel de Palol Award, 2008), which was followed by a further nine books of poetry, all award-winners, including Vida limitada (Món de Llibres, 2013), Animals d’hivern (Edicions 62, 2016) and Neutre (Bromera, 2017).

In 2018, she published her first novel, Permagel (Club Editor), which became one of the top selling books around the Sant Jordi Book Day and won the Llibreter Award. The work tells the story of a woman with suicidal tendencies caused by a recurrent existential void; this is contrasted with a strong desire to live life freely and intensely. Permagel is the first book in a trilogy where the author offers an exploration in the first person of the universe of three different women, who experience the contradictions of their time.
