A Bad End

A Bad End

"The burlesque echoes the best Spanish classics, from Quevedo to Camilo José Cela."—M. García Posada, El País

A undesirable finish is the tale of Goyito, a dwarf on the finish of his existence, who tells us, in a sour and sarcastic method, the depressing truth of his lonely adolescence, his macabre reports as a circus clown, and his liaisons dangereuses in Madrid's underworld. Mischief, hope, demise, ambition, revenge—the lifetime of a rascal advised in exuberant, exhilarating language. Winner of the Premio Ojo Crítico.

Fernando Royuela is a Spanish attorney and fiction author who lives in Madrid, Spain.
