Cela (Trulock) at English => English (The Britannica Concise) Of Explained:
Spanish writer. As a young man he served with F. Franco's forces in the Spanish Civil War; his literary works represent a renunciation of his former Falangist sympathies. Primarily novels, short narratives, and travel diaries of Spain and Latin America, they are characteristically experimental and innovative in form and content. He is sometimes credited with establishing tremendismo, a narrative style tending to emphasize violence and grotesque imagery. He is perhaps best known for his first novel, The Family of Pascal Duarte (1942); other works include The Hive (1951) and the avant-garde San Camilo, 1936 (1969). He was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1989.
