Jesús Moncada (1941-2005) was one of the key figures in Catalan literature at the end of the twentieth century, witnessed by the reception of his work both by the public and the critics. His writing has been translated into over twenty languages and won several important literary prizes. His first novel, published in English as The Towpath by HarperCollins in 1994, is regarded as one of the finest examples of contemporary Catalan writing.

Where the Rivers Meet is the first book-length study of his work in English, and also contains two new translations. Moncada's work has been compared to Gabriel Garcia Marquez and published in Spain alongside Colm Tóibín and Carlos Ruiz Zafon (Shadow of the Wind).

Kathryn Crameri (Sydney University) has worked with a team of Catalanist academics and translators in preparing this work, including Hector Moret (Valencia), Stewart King (Monash University), Sandrine Ribes and Judith Willis (freelance translator of many Spanish books in the UK).
