The Unknown (1889) is Galdós' first and only totally epistolary novel. The narrator, writing to a friend in the country, tells of Madrid's politics, society, amours, characters, and crimes, in lively, ironic, amusing style. This fresh and witty translation retains Galdós' humor and sarcasm on the society and people he knew so well.
