Pinnacle of what some critics have called the new sentimental novel, this work, informed in part by certain topoi of the picaresque novel, presents one of the most likeable and delicious characters in Spanish 20th century literature. Martin Romaña exemplifies a new form of masculinity, which involves tenderness, the profusion of sentiment, verbal play and an uncontainable and fascinating sense of humor.
