The Family of Pascual Duarte is a novel by the Spanish writer Camilo José Cela, published in 1942. This novel is fundamental to the tremendismo genre, a brutal realism marked by extended and frequent violent scenes. The novel's characters live under extremely difficult conditions, and the protagonist, Pascual Duarte, is one of such people. Mostly, he is the narrator, but there are other narrators from the Duarte family who suffered a lot of pain and misfortune.
