Pío Baroja y Nessi (2)

It's over three years since I first published a post on Pío Baroja y Nessi, the Spanish Basque writer who lived from 1872 - 1956. Baroja, and his always worn beret, are too photogenic to not post some more.
The most characteristic aspect of his more than sixty novels is the quirky style: direct, unadorned, devoid of sensationalism. 
Endowed with a phenomenal perception and a flawless memory, Baroja becomes the great chronicler of Spain during the first half of the twentieth century.
Baroja wrote his novels in the form of trilogies.
