Over the course of 20 years, Manel Fontdevila devoted a monthly page in El Jueves, one of Spain’s most widely read magazines, to tell the story of a young couple: “La Parejita.” The everyday anecdotes and brilliant ideas of Emilia and Mauricio (and eventually their son Óscar, too) were both hilariously funny and had an almost anthropological look at relationships. Fontdevila made us feel better about our ups and downs, when we saw them reflected in his almost archetypal characters that couples all over the world can relate to. Now he has created a new version with updated graphics and available in book form.
