Quim Monzo is considered to be the greatest Catalan writer of his generation. He has received numerous awards, including Serra d'Or magazine's prestigious Critics' Award four times. He has also translated numerous authors into Catalan, including Truman Capote and J. D. Salinger.

Peter Bush is a renowned translator from Catalan, French, Spanish, and Portuguese. He was awarded the Valle-Inclan Literary Translation Prize for his translation of Juan Goytisolo's The Marx Family Saga.

A Thousand Morons is rife with very unfortunate characters, like the prince whose kisses are ineffective in waking the sleeping beauty. An excellent combination of longer, elegiac stories of "morons," aging, and the passage of time—with short, flashier pieces displaying Monzo's wit and playfulness—makes this his strongest collection.
