In 2007 he wrote and read the opening speech at the Frankfurt Book Fair. Monzó designed a lecture written as if it was a short story. It differed completely from traditional speeches. Together with Cuca Canals, he wrote the dialogues for Bigas Luna's movie “Jamón, jamón”. He has also written the musical satire “El tango de Don Joan”, with Jérome Savary. He is a regular contributor to the “La Vanguardia” newspaper. “The Enormity of the Tragedy”, a brilliant grotesque novel, is regarded by many as Monzó’s greatest work.
