Praise for Sergio Y.

“A beautiful, moving, profound book…Sergio Y. is wonderfully accomplished and subtle and I am so glad to have read it.”
—Andrew Solomon, author of Far from the Tree

“Porto’s captivating, impeccably structured novel is a detective story wrapped around a deeper exploration of identity.”
Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

“One of Armando’s main aims as a narrator is to complicate the narrative of gender transition, to embrace a certain measure of existential mystery that ties it to other journeys of transformation…he accomplishes this with a sensitivity to nuance and a supple, philosophical expansiveness.”
World Literature Today

“Beautifully told and translated, it explores the limitations of truly knowing another person…”
Lamda Literary

Sergio Y. is one of the best books I’ve read in a long time…I gush about it to everyone I meet.”
—Zoë Perry, translator of Paulo Coelho

“With Sergio Y., Alexandre Vidal Porto makes clear why he is one of the essential writers in Brazilian contemporary literature.”
—Luiz Ruffato

“Readers will find it impossible to put this book down.”
—José Castello
