Gibraltarian author M.G. Sanchez has just released a new novel about Gibraltar. Entitled The Escape Artist: A Gibraltarian novel, it is set in the decade between 1970 and 1980 and features a plot that alternates between Cambridge, Venice and Gibraltar. Professor John A. Stotesbury, adjunct Professor in Postcolonial Literatures from the University of Oulu, has already described the book as “fascinating and highly readable,” while Dr Esterino Adami, an English Literature Professor from the University of Turin, has praised how in the book M. G. Sanchez “brings to the fore a strong sense of Gibraltarian identity.”
