Praise for Songs for the Flames

“Prodigious author, journalist, and translator Vásquez, one of South America’s most important writers, is once again deftly translated by award-winning [Anne] McLean.”Booklist, starred review

“A bravura collection blending autofiction with stories of historical and personal trauma…Vásquez continues to distinguish himself among the finest writers from Latin America.” Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Vásquez paints a picture of a country that’s constantly buffeted by violent political rivalries, narcos, and war and where even bystanders get drawn in. A bracing set of stories about smaller traumas embedded among a country’s larger crises.” Kirkus Reviews
