Captain Mansana and Mother's Hands

by Bjørnstjerne M. Bjørnson

The story of Captain Mansana, a sort of Italian Don Quixote, and a seething volcano of passion and extravagance, is absurdly unnatural and improbably; but the skill of the teller is so great, he has drawn his picture with such art, that we are entrapped into believing in it. The impossible characters, reminiscent of Dumas at his best, seem to be real men and women, and his story of their adventures is so exciting that we hold our breath till we have ended the book.

Author of the Day

Ezekiel Nieto Benzion
