Editorial Reviews

Review

"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
 
“Montalbán writes with authority and compassion—a Le Carré-like sorrow.”
—Publishers Weekly

About the Author

Poet, playwright, essayist, and novelist Manuel Vázquez Montalbán (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 Montalbán’s native Barcelona—has won international acclaim, including the Planeta prize (1979) and the International Grand Prix de Littérature Policière (1981).
 
Patrick Camiller has also translated Che Guevara’s African diaries.
