Description - Plants Don't Drink Coffee by Unai Elorriaga

Unai Elorriaga gives voice to unassuming characters, to 'small' people with 'small' lives; he magnifies things that often go unnoticed. Four stories narrated from different perspectives crisscross throughout this single novel. In the first-person, the young Tomas - who wants above all else to be intelligent - tells us why it is so important for him to catch a blue dragonfly and introduces his extended (and eccentric) family to us one by one.
