A Bad End is a novel that accounts for almost a century of Spanish history and mercilessly dissects human cruelty. It is the story of Goyito, a dwarf at the end of his life, who recounts to us, with bitterness and sarcasm, the miserable reality of his lonely childhood, his macabre experiences as a circus clown, his liaisons dangereuses in Madrid's underworld. Mischief, desire, death, ambition, and revenge-the life of a rascal, told in exuberant, exhilarating language that makes the reader shift from laughter to grimace, from admiration to bewilderment.
Fernando Royuela is a Spanish lawyer and fiction writer who lives in Madrid. He has published six novels as well as several short stories and books of poetry. The success of the Spanish edition of A Bad End confirmed his place among the most talented writers of his generation and earned him the prestigious Ojo Critico Award for the best novel of the year.
