An Enigma Unveiled


El año en que quise ser B. Traven o cómo nació M. A. West by Alexis Ravelo

I did exchanged some emails with Margot Kinberg but we were unable to find out more about M. A. West. Now the enigma has been unveiled. And I look forward to reading El Viento y La Sangre, in Spanish of course. A hat tip to Alexis Ravelo.

Last June 15th, Margot wrote Quote Thanks for that link. I did a little research, and so far, have not found out much about this author. Apparently though, she wrote several pulp fiction/detective novels, most of them ‘hardboiled.’ But there is little available about her work. In fact, I cannot even find a link to the original English version of El Viento y La Sangre. But I did find a few things. Here is one resource. And here is another. Unquote

  1. Thank you, José Ignacio. I wondered about M.A. West, and it’s good to know this background. Now I have some new reading to explore, too. And thank you for the kind mention.
