Lazarillo de Tormes, Anonymous, translated by Michael Alpert. Excellent use of the Picaresque genre with satire and irony to provide a fascinating account of life in Spain under the inquisition. Well written although the author remains anonymous.

I read Lazarillo de Tormes when my mother was trying to get me to read Spanish lit.  You have to read it in Spanish to get it. I Have two copies. One was given to me by  my mother. It has English on the right side of a two page spread  and Spanish on the left, The  other I bought at a foreign book store on Hillside and Kew Gardens some years ago.  I bought lots of books from them. They wholesale foreign classics in their original languages. You have to look closely to find them.
