About the Author

Poet, playwright, essayist, and novelist Manuel Vazquez Montalban (1939-2003) was one of modern Spain's greatest writers. A politically active leftist as a young man, he was jailed under Franco for four years for supporting a miners' strike. As an adult, he also became a gourmand, and wrote often about food. His Pepe Carvalho series--set in Montalban's native Barcelona--has won international acclaim, including the Planeta prize (1979) and the International Grand Prix de Litterature Policiere (1981).

Patrick Camiller has also translated Che Guevara's African diaries.

Reviews

"The English-speaking world appears to be playing catch-up, a matter that will be rectified with Melville House's reissue of five of the best adventures." --The Daily Beast

"The most original detective to come along in an age and the mix of political intrigue, Barcelona style, and Catalan cooking tips, makes for a great read."
--Venue "Pepe Carvalho is a phlegmatic investigator. His greatest concern is with his stomach, but when not pursuing delicacies, he can unravel the most tangled of mysteries."
--Sunday Times "Montalban writes with authority and compassion--a Le Carre-like sorrow."
--Publishers Weekly
