Confronting an impassive world, Guillermo Rosales has left us this painful, violent, and lyrical testament. — Le Figaro
It seems almost impossible to find so much cruelty in barely one hundred pages; but it’s just that behind these terrible and moving one hundred pages there are thousands of pages, millions of sentences, that reveal an entirely destroyed universe. Indispensable. — Revista Leer
The real brilliance is…its portrait of a man...reduced to the very cruelty he had tried to avoid. — Jascha Hoffman (The National)
This book is a shot of light through the darkness of human misery. — Jeff Waxman (Three Percent)
The characters in the halfway house are tragically beautiful and unforgettable. — Susan Salter Reynolds (Los Angeles Times)
Perfect for the pool and beyond. — Joy Tipping (Fort Worth Star-Telegram)
A masterful kick-in-the-teeth…savagely beautiful. — Bill Marx (The World, Public Radio International)
Hope inevitably implodes into disappointment, and love…curdles with the possibility of destruction. — Abigail Deutsch (The Literary Review)
We are fortunate to have this award-winning book finally available to English-speaking readers. Very powerful and gripping. — Bessy Reyna (Multicultural Review)
With The Halfway House, Rosales joins the pantheon of the very best Cuban writers, José Lezama Lima, Pinera, and Reinald Arenas. — Thomas McGonigle (Review of Contemporary Fiction)
