"In this book, María Alonso Alonso develops a fresh methodological approach to the works of immigrant and transnational writers, particularly those from the Caribbean. While this volume offers numerous insights into diaspora, identity, memory and trauma studies, Alonso's main contribution undoubtedly lies in her articulation of a non-Eurocentric world vision, indeed a "literary philosophy" as well as a narrative technique that she calls diasporic marvellous realism (16)."
- Jocelyn Martin, Recherche littéraire/ Literary Research of the International Comparative Literature Association, Vol. 32, Summer 2016).
"Alonso's account of the twists and turns in the history of magical realism, and the differences between lo real maravilloso and realismo mágico, is one of the best that I have read -- proving that much has still to be said on the mode's evolutionary chronology." - Felicity Gee, Wasafiri 32:2, 2017
