LINK to an excellent essay in the 4 August London Review of Books. This is a major and insightful article celebrating the outstanding literary mystery series by Ben Pastor featuring her larger-than-life character, Martin Bora.
In the words of Fredric Jameson,
the Knut Schmidt Nielsen Professor of Comparative Literature at Duke University: “Maria Verbena Volpi is to be credited with having invented [Martin Bora]; but perhaps, even more, to be congratulated on her creation of his author, ‘Ben Pastor’, whose imagination seems indeed to have invented the Second World War itself.”
We are proud to have published seven novels in the Martin Bora series.
