Sanchez Ferlosio, who was born in Rome on Dec. He based his work on the use of realistic narrative, which reflected everyday life. His formative years were spent as the son of a foreign correspondent living in Rome, where he learned Italian neo-realism, and was influenced by the style when he returned to live in Spain in the post Spanish Civil War era.
Much of his writing reflected the difficult times in the s and 50s on themes such as war, poverty, austerity and morality. Perhaps his most famous work is the novel 'El Jarama' which was published in and won him the prestigious 'Premio Nadal' of that same year.
The book tells the story of a group of youngsters from Madrid, who spend a day in the country and highlights the contrast between urban and rural Spain. Sanchez Ferlosio's career was further recognized in when he won the Cervantes Prize Premio Cervantes , the most important award for Spanish literature.
