Product Details


"A harrowing, brilliant  novel."–The New Yorker.

"A  powerful new novel… Thorton seems to have wedded  his study of such writers as Borges and Marquez  with thy his own instinctive gift for metaphor, and  in doing so, created his own brand of magical  realism"–The New York  Times.

"Remarkable… Deeply  inventive… Thorton has imagined Argentina truly; his  inspired fable troubles and feeds our own intriguing  imagining."–Los Angeles  Times.

"Imagining Argentina is a  slim volume filled with beautiful writing. It is  an exciting adventure story. It is a haunting love  story. And it is a story for all  time."–Detroit Free  Press.

"The writing is crystalline, the  metaphors compelling… Its central theme is  universal."–The Philadelphia  Inquirer.

"In a time when much North  American fiction is contained by crabbed realism,  Thorton takes for his material one of the bleaker  recent instances of human cruelty, sees in it the  enduring nobility of the human spirit and imagines a  book that celebrates that  spirit."–The Washington Post Book World.  

"A powerful first  novel and a manifesto for the memorializing power of  literature."–
The New York Times  Book Review.

"A  profoundly hopeful book."–The Cleveland  Plain Dealer
