French in Chicago community awards 2010 – Delphine Pontvieux wins oscar for her novel ETA

French in Chicago community awards 2010 – Delphine Pontvieux wins oscar in “arts and culture” category for her novel ‘ETA-Estimated Time of Arrest’

Chicago author Delphine Pontvieux received an award last sunday in Chicago for her novel ‘ETA- Estimated Time of Arrest’ . (cfr Salad Days Mag issue #3 review)
Delphine Pontvieux’s ETA: Estimated Time of Arrest is a sharp, fast-moving, intelligent novel that is equal parts thriller and romance. When Faustine Laroche falls for Rafael Vargas, she has no way of knowing about the past that he’s running from. Years earlier, he participated in a march against the Spanish government that went horribly wrong. Now, living in exile under an assumed name, Vargas is a wanted criminal — and the terrorist organization that helped him escape from Spanish authorities is calling in the favor. What follows is a (literally) explosive adventure that signals the debut of an impressive new talent in Pontvieux and also an impressive first outing for publisher Miss Nyet Publishing. {…} As good as (if not better than) any thriller on the mainstream market, ETA is, appropriately, full of twists and turns, but it never loses sight of the human element that makes works of fiction so compelling. It is that rare gem of a suspense novel that serves not only as a page-turner, but also as a hopeful reminder that for all of our flaws and crimes, we are all viable candidates for redemption.”– Small Press Review, July 2010
