The Family of Pascual Duarte is the story of Pascual Duarte--a Spanish peasant born into a brutal world of poverty, hatred, and depravity--as told from his prison cell, where he awaits execution for the murders he's committed throughout his lifetime. Despite his savage and cruel impulses, Pascual retains a childlike sense of the world and a groping desire to understand the blows of fate that led him down his bloody path. Originally published in the same year as Camus's The Stranger--to which it has been compared--The Family of Pascual Duarte is closer in tone to the works of Curzio Malaparte and Louis-Ferdinand C line.
