Translated by Douglas Suttle

The Intimate Resistance is a keen, deeply beautiful reflection on the human condition in which Esquirol draws on philosophers such as Heidegger, Sartre, Camus, and Nietzsche as he develops his theory of how intimacy and a celebration of the everyday can warm, protect and guide. Interspersed with moments of beautiful, almost poetic prose that Esquirol uses to draw attention to the beauty surrounding us, this inspirational essay can, at its most intense moments, take your breath away. Already a modern classic in its original Catalan, The Intimate Resistance will change the way you look at daily life, and provide insights to be pondered for years to come.
