Original title

El bandido doblemente armado

A novel by Soledad Puértolas about the fascination of an anonymous narrator with a very peculiar family - the Lennoxes.

The author transports us to the world of the Lennoxes, a very peculiar family that lives in an abstract and vague city. The greatest novelty in this book is the narrator - an anonymous voice that is fascinated with the family.

This narrator provides quite a deformed perspective because he fails to mention anecdotes and information, leaving the readers feeling that it is an incomplete story. The author wants the readers to fill in the gaps of the plot with their own imagination, which gives them an active role in the novel.

The novel was given the Sésamo Novel Award in 1979.
