More About Lorenzo Silva
Lorenzo Silva is one of the leading writers of his generation, best known for his five detective novels El lejano pais de los estanques (The Far Away Pond Land), El alquimista impaciente (The Impatient Alchemist), La niebla y la doncella (The Mist and the Maiden), La reina sin espejo (The Queen Without a Mirror), and La estrategia del agua (Water's Stategy), all published by Destino, and all featuring the detective Ruben Bevilacqua and his young assistant Virginia Chamorro, who together represent the new face of Spain's Guardia Civil - a very different animal from its infamous predecessors. While already brilliant in themselves, Silva's stories are enhanced by the subplots the author weaves into the relationship between Bevilacqua and Chamorro, which become as riveting as the main plot, and the snappy dialogue adds to the sheer delight of reading these novels. Silva is a sensitive and intelligent voice for our time, whose other works include The Faint-hearted Bolshevik, El nombre de los nuestros (The Name of our People), La sustancia interior (The Inner Substance), El blog del inquisidor (The Inquisitor's Blog), Carta Blanca (Carte Blanche) and Ninos feroces (Fierce Children), as well as books for young adults and children. He has won the Ojo Critico Award (1998), the Nadal Award (2000) and the Primavera Award (2004) and his latest novel, La marca del meridiano, won the Premio Planeta award in 2012, one of the best known Spanish literary awards.
