Uppercase, serif, sloping brackets, medium variation on stroke. Plus italics... or slanted letterforms, I would not know.

It is part of the book jacket from a Spanish novel. Is the typeface that states the author's name condensed or that's just the way the typeface was designed? And what's with the non-closing P letterform?

Thank you all in advance!

Adobe Garamond, squooshed.

Strikingly similar, yes. But why would anyone squoosh such a classic typeface? The all-around proportions seem somehow... well, distorted. And I am, by no means, a fussy classicist.
