Who was José Manuel Castañón?

José Manuel Castañón was a Spanish writer born in Pola de Lena, Asturias. Although he fought in Francisco Franco’s 1936 military uprising he was very soon disappointed with Franco’s regime and in 1957 left for a 20-year exile in Venezuela. His best-known novel “Moletu-Voleva”, published in Madrid in 1956, a story about the crazy lust for money, was very much acclaimed.
