More > parents settle in Manhattan but peace remains out of reach as domestic turmoil, eccentric refugee friends, Zionist summer camp and an environment of political and ideological uncertainties create a life fraught with new adversities. She and her friend plot a life of artistic escape and greatness. With her father she’s held tight in a chafing bond of love and rebellion. A failed marriage, artistic and existential despair, and disillusionment with post-World War II American society drive her to escape again, this time to paint in Spain. But peace remains out of reach there, too, despite a love affair, a conversion to Catholicism, and efforts at religious dedication. This chronicle of Jewish escape from Europe tracks the twists and turns of that displacement, and an immigrant generation’s struggle to build a new life in America.< Less

More > patients are used. A group of 750 youths from Europe were brought to England soon after the war ended in 1945. They had been deported to concentration camps when they were approximately between the ages of 13 - 16. Of the 40 T.B. cases found among them, most had been cured by the time this story occurs. In Quare Mead we meet the hardcore cases, those who were still ill four years after liberation. This book tells of twelve boys and one girl who, in years 1949 and 1950, finally found the courage to face normal life again, and returned to health. The way in which they were guided toward that goal, is illustrated in this book. The Road Back is written in the form of letters, a kind of diary of daily life in Quare Mead.< Less

"Mara Pastor’s work traces a lyrical map full of travels and displacements. Her poetic subject is born from the liminal space between the “here and there”, and embraces this... More > constant “traveling” or travesía as an inescapable Caribbean condition. Her literary journey presents a personal struggle, where the poetic voice demands it’s life back, from the literature that holds it hostage: “La literatura/me ha podrido la vida que soñé de niña/ y le ha hecho una casa sin ventanas,/ la literatura me tiene de rehén mirando/ hacia la casa, lamentándome.” The poetic subject fights against isolation by creating a universe that allows her to escape spatial confinement. Pastor takes the reader through an intimate journey into the past, which always seems to find its way back into the present, defying lineal perception of time. The travesía takes multiple forms; sometimes as the artistic route between the idea and the written verse, and other times as a flight from the past, people, and the self.” Lorna Torrado< Less
