Award-Winning Spanish Novelist Francisco Casavella Dead at 45
Heart attack claims young promising voice and Nadal Prize winner.

MADRID -- Spanish novelist Francisco Casavella, the winner of the latest edition of the Nadal Prize, died Wednesday of a heart attack, publisher Destino informed Efe. He was 45.

Casavella, whose real name was Francisco Garcia Hortelano, was considered one of the most promising voices in recent Spanish fiction.

The Barcelona native published, among other works, the novels "El triunfo" (1990), "Quedate" (1993) and "El dia del Watusi" (2002-2003), a trilogy comprised of "Los juegos feroces," "Viento y joyas" and "El idioma imposible."

On Jan. 6 of this year, the writer was honored with the 64th edition of the Nadal Prize for his work "Lo que se de los vampiros" (What I Know About Vampires), with which he intended to give value to a kind of historical novel that allows the author to offer the reader "a philosophy of history."

The novel, published by Destino, tells the story of Martin de Viloalle, who must deal for the rest of his life with the consequences of his decision to accompany the Jesuits expelled from Spain on April 2, 1767.

Casavella also developed himself as a book reviewer for Madrid daily El Pais and other media outlets and combined writing novels and screenplays as in "El triunfo," "Volveras" and "Antartida."
