Original title

Aventuras de una peseta

This collection of some of the best articles published in the press during the golden age of Spanish journalism offers a splendid humorous portrait of the Europe of the time.

This volume contains the chronicles and charming observations made by the journalist and writer Julio Camba in his travels around several countries in Europe as the correspondent for newspapers such as 'El Mundo' and 'La Correspondencia de España', in the years prior to the publication of this collection.

The book is divided into four parts, containing articles on the subject of Germany immediately after World War I, the United Kingdom at the same time, Italy and Portugal.

With his highly personal combination of humanity, humour and intelligence, the observations and articles in this work offer an acutely-observed depiction of the reality of his time. Camba focuses his gaze like a scalpel on a wide range of issues in a style –at times absurd, at times tremendously logical– reminiscent of the best tradition of English humour.
