    • Ayala, a sociologist who in 2009 died at age 103, saw the best and the worst of Spanish society in his long life. This novel from 1965 is written in the form of a memoir by a witness to the excesses of a totalitarian regime. There is a sardonic knowingness to the narrative--an expectation that people in power will behave badly, and that the worst will rise to the top. An amusing and disquieting novel.

    • I gave it 4 stars only because I can't give it 3.5 stars. I appreciate the art and the message of Ayala in Muertes de perro and it is an interesting read, but it won't have you glued to the story or the characters. It also isn't something I would ever re-read.
