Rats and Roaches, by Claudia Pagès

Rats and Roaches

There’s rats and there’s roaches. Anna and her lover live in a shoe store and stroll around Barcelona’s Eixample. One is obsessed with local shopkeepers and the ways rats and roaches gentrify neighborhoods. The other traces the circulation of sand as a commodity around the city.
