La torre vigía / The Watchtower

Novel , 1971


Set in a sensual, magical and mythical Middle Age, The Watchtower is a peculiar chivalric romance that narrates, in the first person and with a modern sensibility, the years of apprenticeship and training of a young knight, through a plot full of heroism, superstition and barbarism. The discovery of the world and its conflicts, nostalgia, and the longing and the difficulty of establishing relationships during his childhood and adolescence mark the early years of the young knight, imprisoned in a world where everything operates according to primitive and feverish instincts, and in which love, hate, violence, loneliness, cruelty and nostalgia alternate to offer the portrait of a disturbing and mysterious universe that, at the same time, is wild and passionate.
