German was the language commonly used at their home. His relationship with his father was stressful, as Karl Arlt was a very severe and austere man, by Arlt's own account.

The memory of his oppressive father would appear in several of his writings. For example, Remo Erdosain a character at least partially based on Arlt's own life often recalls his abusive father and how little if any support he would give him. After being expelled from school at the age of eight, Arlt became an autodidact and worked at all sorts of different odd jobs before landing a job on at a local newspaper: as clerk at a bookstore, apprentice to a tinsmith, painter, mechanic, welder, manager in a brick factory, and dock worker.

His first novel, El juguete rabioso "Mad Toy" , was the semi-autobiographical story of Silvio, a dropout who goes through a series of adventures trying to be "somebody. The narrator's literary and sometimes poetic language contrasts sharply with the street-level slang of Mad Toy's many colorful characters.

Arlt used these columns to comment, in his characteristically forthright and unpretentious style, on the peculiarities, hypocrisies, strangeness and beauty of everyday life in Argentina's capital. Some of the "Aguafuertes" were collected in two volumes under the titles Secretos femeninos. In he spent nearly a year writing as he traveled throughout Spain and North Africa, on the eve of the Spanish Civil War. At the time of his death, Arlt was hoping to be sent to the United States as a correspondent.

Worn out and exhausted after a lifetime of hardships, he died from a stroke on July 26, His coffin was lowered from his apartment by an operated crane, an ironic end, considering his bizarre stories. Analogues in English literature are those who avoid literary 'respectability' by writing about the poor, the criminal and the mad: writers like William Burroughs, Iceberg Slim, and Irvine Welsh. Arlt, however, predated all of them.

He is widely considered to be one of the founders of the modern Argentine novel; among those contemporary writers who cla Books by Roberto Arlt.
