In 2022 it will be sixty years since ‘Time of Silence’ was published, the novel by writer and psychiatrist Luis Martín-Santos with which he revolutionized the Spanish literary scene in the second half of the 20th century.
For this reason, the Arturo Pérez-Reverte Chair of the University of Murcia pays tribute to this work by programming a round table in which its biographer, José Lázaro, professor of psychiatry at the Complutense University of Madrid and author of ‘Lives and Deaths of Luis Martin-Santos’; Narciso Jalón, responsible for publishing the posthumous work of Martín-Santos ‘Time of Destruction’; and the Murcian physician and writer Fernando de la Cierva. The event will take place on Tuesday, May 10 at 8 p.m. in the auditorium of the Royal Academy of Medicine and Surgery (Archaeological Museum Building) and is coordinated by José Belmonte, Director of the Pérez-Reverte Chair.
Martín-Santos, although of Basque descent, was born in Larache (Morocco) in 1924 and published a single novel during his lifetime, ‘Tiempo de silencio’, edited by Carlos Barral in 1962, which made a great impression among his contemporaries and was translated shortly afterwards into several languages. Martín-Santos died in 1975, before reaching the age of 40, in a traffic accident.
