From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Wenceslao Fernández Flórez (A Coruña, Galicia, 1885 — Madrid, 1964) was a popular Spanish journalist and novelist of the early 20th century. Throughout his career, he retained an intense fondness for the land of his birth.

Early life and career

His father died when he was fifteen years old, forcing Wenceslao to abandon his education and dedicate himself to journalism. His first job was with A Coruña's La Mañana, and he went on to write for El Heraldo de Galicia, Diario de A Coruña and Tierra Gallega. At the age of eighteen he was given a senior position at Diario Ferrolano. He later returned to A Coruña to work at El Noroeste.

Work in Madrid and Novels

In 1914 Flórez moved to Madrid, where he worked at El Imparcial and Diario ABC, where he started the parliamentary column Acotaciones de un oyente. He had begun writing novels - La tristeza de la paz (1910), La procesión de los días (1915) and Luz de luna (1915), and Volvoreta (1917).
