Antonio Penedo of Quimera remarked that Luisgé Martín has “become a specialist in telling stories about descent; not into hell as such a thing does not exist, but into something much more terrible, because it is true: the impossibility of existence.” Viky Navarro of Europa Press declared that Martín “affirms that literature is a weapon that can harm, and his aim is to write novels capable of perturbing or injuring readers to make them react against a society that finds it ever easier to scandalize people with idiocy.”

Luisgé Martín’s works include the short story collections Los oscuros (The Dark Ones) and El alma del erizo (The Hedgehog's Soul), the novels La dulce ira (Sweet Rage), La muerte de Tadzio (Tadzio's Death), which won the Ramón Gómez de la Serna Award, Los amores confiados (The Trusting Loves), Las manos cortadas (Cutting Off Hands), La mujer de sombra (Woman in Darkness, Hispabooks. 2014), and the collection of letters Amante del sexo busca pareja morbosa (Sex Lover Seeks Playmate). In 2009 he was awarded the Premio del Tren Antonio Machado short fiction prize for his story Los años más felices (The Happiest Years), and in February 2013 he received the Llanes de Viajes award for his book of travels Donde el Silencio (Where There is Silence). His latest work of fiction is this novel, La vida equivocada (The Wrong Life). He occasionally works as a columnist in various periodicals such as El Viajero, Babelia, El País and Shangay Express.
