I was born in Barcelona and have lived in the UK for many years now. I'm a writer, translator (English-Spanish and vice-versa) and I'm a medical doctor and worked in Forensic Psychiatry many years. I also have a BA and a PhD in American Literature and Film, and a Masters in Criminology. I've always loved books and apart from writing them I review them often. I write a bit of everything, check my books for more information and my about page for links. My blog is bilingual, English and Spanish.

  1. Hirschi’s book sounds enthralling. I think it would be a difficult story to write. Thank you for sharing your review.

    1. Thanks, Priscilla. Yes, not a subject easy to deal with. The author explains that the characters come to his mind and nag him to tell their story, and I think, in this case, this was a story that needed to be told. Hirschi’s choices of subjects are fascinating. Have a great week.

  2. Thank you Olga.

    1. Another great novel from one of my favourite authors. Thanks, Rosie.

  3. Undeniably powerful, as well as something very different. It does sound incredibly interesting. Thanks for an excellent review, Olga.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Thanks, Pete. Hans Hirschi never takes the easy road. Enjoy the week and keep safe. 🙂

  4. What a daunting undertaking — to write such a book. Different, indeed. Thanks for your insightful review, Olga. Kudos to Hans. Hugs on the wing.

    1. Thanks, Teagan. You’re right. He doesn’t shy away from difficult subjects. Enjoy the rest of the week and take care. 🙂

  6. This really does sound very intriguing, Olga. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Thanks, Robbie. The author is well-worth following. I really enjoyed his novel Willem of the Tafel, set in South Africa (well, in a sci-fi version of South Africa), but, to be honest, I would find it difficult to choose a favourite.
      Enjoy the rest of the week.
