“…Trueba scores with his story about the need people have to connect to others, whether through sports, love or money.”—Cleveland Plain Dealer

“One part Paul Thomas Anderson’s Magnolia, one part Paul Haggis’ Crash, the rest is all David Trueba, modern day Madrid, and a narrative that pulsates with longing, lust and simmering rage. Don’t dare pick it up if you have plans for the weekend, or for the rest of the day for that matter. It’s that good. I was casting the adaptation in my mind as I tore through it. Vivid, real and raw, the novel is at once unsparing and entirely humane. Simply masterful.”—Joe McGinniss, Jr., author of The Delivery Man
Learning to Lose is complex, powerful, surprising and most of all smart. David Trueba is the real thing. I had a lot of work on my desk and it is still on my desk. I have however read Mr. Trueba’s novel. Enough said.”—Percival Everett, author of I Am Not Sidney Poitier
