His writing is characterized by the precise choice of every word, a deep intimist tendency and the meticulous and accurate description of atmospheres, and the pathos that pervades the characters. A classic narration, of autobiographical kind, countersigned by an elegant and painstaking form, and a well-defined and personal style.
