First he begins spying on his neighbours, then he starts leading them on, creating a reversal of the maxim that art follows life - with some dire consequences. Written with a supremely light touch, these witty novellas are enjoyable masterpieces that linger long in the memory. Cercas is a superficially humorous and profoundly disturbing author.
The Motive is a small comic masterpiece with a satisfyingly bleak ending This was, of course, partly because the Falangists won, and for another 35 years Spanish culture had the heavy hand of Franco stifling any attempts at coming to terms with the past or in forging an innovative future. Partly, as in Germany, it was also the factor of how long it takes for culture, in this instance, fiction, to catch up with reality or politics.
They were not only German civilians, but millions of soldiers, conscripted to fight with however well- or ill-informed a conscience, and who suffered the consequences at the time and for the rest of their lives.

It was the ambivalence of choice between life and death, good and evil, that captured and captivated the immense audience the book won. Fascinating, then, to find that these two pieces of juvenilia - a campus novella set in the Midwest and a long short story set in Spain, both written in the Eighties - raised many of the same issues. In The Tenant, insomnia turns into nightmare as visiting lecturer Mario Rota twists his ankle when out on a run, and by further steps also loses his job, his flat, his girlfriend and his reason.
