Praise

Praise for Patricio Pron and Don’t Shed Your Tears for Anyone Who Lives on These Streets

“This ambitious, challenging work breaks with form and reflects on the psychology of fascism.”
Washington Independent Review of Books
 
“Part suspense novel. . . . Part historical investigation . . . A skillfully constructed exploration of past events that many Italians would just as soon forget.”
Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“Without a doubt, one of the greatest novels of the last several years. . . . Dazzling.” 
Babelia / El País (Spain)

“[Patricio Pron] probes the thorniest of ontological and epistemological questions, [and] compellingly displays—as well as explores—fiction’s power to unearth the most deeply buried emotional truths.”
The Independent (London)
 
Don’t Shed Your Tears for Anyone Who Lives on These Streets is a feast.”
El Cultural (Spain)

“Pron is an immense talent, a daring writer with an absolutely unique voice.”
—Daniel Alarcón, author of Lost City Radio

“A book of beauty and substance . . . A huge gift.”
Vozpópuli (Spain)
 
“A decisive achievement . . . Reading this, one feels grateful that books of this quality are still being written.”
ABC Cultural (Spain)

 “An extraordinarily gifted writer.”
—KUER radio (Salt Lake City)

“In the wake of authors such as Enrique Vila-Matas or César Aira, Argentine writer Patricio Pron manages to double down on all the literary bets that came before him . . . With his previous work, Pron has more than demonstrated the greatness of his literary project and his talents as a writer; with Don’t Shed Your Tears for Anyone Who Lives on These Streets, he is at the pinnacle of Spanish literature.”
El Asombrario & Co. (Spain)
 
“One of the finest novelists writing in Spanish today.”
—Alberto Manguel, author of All Men Are Liars
 
“Pron opens his eyes where the rest of us would rather close them and keep them closed.”
—Juan Gabriel Vásquez, author of The Informers
