This research paper has the purpose to analyze the literary work of Stories from the Kronen (1994) from José Ángel Mañas, as well as to create a more in-depth search of the topic using the film adaptation by director Montxo Armendáriz (1995) in which Mañas participates in the creation of the plot. This collaboration generates changes in the final product, some of such changes caused the novel to be far apart from the film, and some others reinforce the novel in a strategic way. In order to succeed in the analysis, it is necessary to establish a historical, sociological, political, and psychological frame. And to this end, it will be discussed the phenomenon of the Transition, the Disenchantment, the "pasotismo", the Spanish "Movida", the Generation X, the racism, the migration, and the misogyny of the Spain represented in Stories from the Kronen.
