A beautiful mind Nataša Pantović with Sunday Times 

“Seated on a panel with her fellow writers, Maltese-Serbian novelist Nataša Pantović has been known to use slam poetry to perform her poetic body of work."

"Like her prose, the improvised words, tribal music, percussionist sounds, lengthy ‘aum’ chanting, are neither too preposterous nor too earnest but endlessly curious. A bridge builder between East and West, following ancient archaeological findings, she often dives into historic settings more than 2,000 years back in time."

"In her novel, Ama: Playing the Glass Bead Game with Pythagoras, the 52-year-old author makes a bold swerve into less-travelled territory. She chooses for her protagonists  Ama, an African priestess, living in China’s Macao in the 17th century; Ruben, a Portuguese Jesuit priest; and Fr Benedict, an Orthodox Christian.”


Who is Ama?

Born in the midst of 17th century Macao, Living at the time of strong religious clashes and dogmas, and the scientific revolution, Ama and her father De-Nobille join the fight of the enlightened minds for the establishment of the New World.  

Take this historical journey, into Macao: the Dutch attack to Macao, on the 24th of June 1622, the Reform of the Chinese Calendar during 1630s, Father Schall’s Appointment to the Chinese Board of Mathematicians (during 1650s), the Witches Hunt, the great Earthquake are all viewed from the magical place of Ama's coffee house.
