Fascinating… Beautifully written and gripping.” — Gioconda Belli, The Guardian
 
“Juan Gabriel Vásquez is one of the most impressive novelists currently writing in Latin America… [H]e has produced half a dozen major works, to which Retrospective is a masterly addition.” – Times Literary Supplement
 
“One of the great novels to have been written in our language.” – Mario Vargas Llosa
