You should know first of all that I'm called Lazaro of Tormes, andthat I'm the son of Tome Gonzales and Antona Perez, who were born inTejares, a village near Salamanca. I was actually born in the TormesRiver, and that's how I got my name...The Life of Lazarillo de Tormes and of His Fortunes and Adversities is a Spanish novella, published anonymously because of its hereticalcontent. It was published simultaneously in three cities in 1554:Alcalá de Henares, Burgos and Antwerp. The Alcalá de Henares editionadds some episodes which were probably written by a second author.
