Industry Reviews

"The Grimm brothers and Franz Kafka pay a visit to Argentina in Samanta Schweblin's darkly humorous tales of people who have slipped through cracks or fallen down holes into alternate realities."
J.M. Coetzee

"Impressive...Schweblin is among the most acclaimed Spanish-language writers of her generation."
New York Times

"This is our world, and sharp-focused, but stripped of its usual meanings... Brutal violence is twisted into horrific, intensely experienced art."

"Samanta has a unique, inventive voice, and her stories have this ability to veer off into strange and unexpected territories with sublime grace. I admire and envy this gift."
Daniel Alarcon, author of At Night We Walk in Circles
