Luiz Alfredo Garcia-Roza used to be a Professor of Philosophy at Rio
University in Brazil until, about eight years ago, he decided to try
something new and turned to writing mysteries. He says that he was
attracted to writing mysteries because 'they are the direct descendants of
mythological thought (and ancient Greek poetry), and bring to the center of
the narrative the most intense and fundamental questions of the human being:
death and sexuality. These are also the main concerns of psychoanalysis, one
of the two areas of my academic research.'
He has always lived in Copacabana (a Rio neighborhood, on the coast, to the East of the city).
The fifth volume in the series, Pursuit, was published in the USA a few days ago.
