Although he used to be more known for his work as a novelist, Reverte's career might fit more a novel character himself. He first became a journalist for newspaper ''Pueblo'' before joining Spain's public broadcast network Televisión Española ([=TVE=] for short), where he worked for many years both as a host for a handful of shows and as a war correspondent for multiple conflicts. He covered nearly a dozen of those, having the dubious chance to see in person some of the nastiest things from TheEighties's political environment, and was particularly involved in the Eritrean War of Independence and UsefulNotes/TheYugoslavWars. His nine-year tenure for TVE was cut short in 1994, when he left after bizarre accusations that one of his novels was slandering the Government of Spain. He became a full time writer afterwards.

Reverte is considered one of the greatest modern Spanish writers, having published 22 books and helped to attract people to the history of the country through his HistoricalFiction novels, usually filled with polished pages of both swashbuckling action and cynical life philosophy. His ''Literature/{{Alatriste}}'' saga was his breakout and remains as his most known work, although he has several other famous novels which have been often adapted to film and TV (though rarely to his delight). All of this granted him membership of the Real Academia in 2003, a job that he has occupied since and combined with a memetic career as a Website/{{Twitter}} animal. Reverte is both famous and infamous there for his bitter wit, disdain for political correction and penchant to engage in verbal brawls with just anybody.
