In a crisp American accent combined with cultured Spanish pronunciations, Conrad shares his vision of the grandeur of the life of Manolete--Spain's most honored and highly paid matador. At the same time, Conrad introduces the bull named Islero, who is destined to meet the matador in their final and fatal appearance in the ring. Conrad, a former vice consul in Spain and amateur bullfighter, originally wrote this short work in 1958. In it he shares his passion for this alien lifestyle. His own admiration for the matador shines through his presentation. Knowing the ending from the start of the story, Conrad still manages to lead the listener into rooting for the impossible survival of both bullfighter and bull.
