Part literary criticism and part political commentary, this biography centers around well-known Catalonian author Manuel Vazquez Montalban and his life s work, the most famous of which featured the character Detective Pepe Carvalho. Particular emphasis is placed on the author s relationship with the city of Barcelona, a cityto which he himself felt quite tied and from which many of his characters fled. Considered to be the most gifted portrayer of the city s transition from the poverty and seediness of the 1960s to the artistic and cultural splendor of the 1990s, Vazquez Montalban and his own particular outlook are examined through studies of his novels set in Barcelona."Combinando lacritica literaria con una evaluacion politica, esta biografia se centra en el reconocido autor catalan Manuel Vazquez Montalban y su obra vitalicia, la mas famosa de la cual fue protagonizada por el detective Pepe Carvalho. En particular, se enfatiza la relacion del autor con la ciudad de Barcelona, una ciudad con la cual el se identificaba y de la cual muchos de sus protagonistas huyeron. Considerado como el interprete mas destacado de la transicion de la ciudad de la pobreza y cutreidad de los anos60 al esplendor artistico y cultural de los 90, Vazquez Montalban y su perspectiva singular son examinados mediante un analisis de sus novelas ambientadas en Barcelona.""show more
