Product Description

Review

Praise for the Spanish edition: "Because of its depth and searing drama, this novel places Ana Maria Shua at the forefront of Argentine literature. The book is deep and perturbing, and it is narrated in a limpid prose, infused with profound lyricism and subtle compassion." Jose Miguel Oviedo, Cuadernos Hispanoamericanos, Spain "Shua masterfully employs black humour and exceptionally well-crafted dialogue to create an innovative work." Fernando Mascarello, Paradoxo, Brazil "This is a book written with the talent of an author who gazed into the depths of her country and added that blaze to this brilliantly written inferno." Elizabeth Subercaseaux, Variedades, Chile
