Praise

“A compelling novel by one of the masters of contemporary fiction.”
Kirkus (starred review)

“The great Fuentes’ latest novel…not only reasserts the continued livelihood of magic realism long after its advent in Latin American fiction in the 1970s but also reaffirms the sheer livelihood of that wondrous characteristic when handled as provocatively as it is here….A startling rendition of Mexican life in all its passion and sadness.”
Booklist

“Often philosophical, political, slapstick, or raunchy, but always provocative….A positively unruly contemplation of Mexico’s history and future.”
Publishers Weekly

“This bold probe of the Mexican situation by a literary master should be enjoyed by everyone interested in the conflicts and contradictions of our global culture.”
Library Journal
