ONE POINT MORE THAN THE DEVIL
JOSÉ LUIS NAVARRO LARA

Carlos, a secondary student from Salamanca, is abducted by a spaceship that will send him to the 16th century, right when “Lázaro de Tormes”, accompanied by the blind man, starts the adventures that will take him to Toledo. Together with Lázaro, he will find success and adversities while he will be exploring life and habits, villas and cities of old Castilian people.

The ability to be unnoticed, since only Lázaro can see and hear him- allows him to entering palaces, noble houses, churches and many other places (some of them, not recommended places to go) and to observe what life in the 16th century was like, under the comparative perspective of a nowadays boy.

 

"Navarro has written a honest novel, avoiding didacticism, a glossary, footnotes or an appendix. We appreciate that it allows readers to decide what interests them the most and then go into a narration that explains so many things, but without saying exactly which things, and, above all, it is really well written” (Ana Garralón in Educación y Biblioteca).
