Kronen generation

The Kronen generación is a generation of Spanish writers who were twenty-somethings in the 1990s, the Spanish Generation X. It took its name from José Ángel MañasHistorias del Kronen, a story of a group of nihilistic twenty-somethings who drink, do drugs, indulge in casual sex and are generally amoral and anti-social. An anthology by Luis Mancha, called Generación Kronen was published in 2006. Besides Mañas, other writers associated with this group include Lucía Etxebarría, Pedro Maestre and Ray Loriga.
