  • "

    The most powerful work of fiction to come from Latin America since One Hundred Years of Solitude

    "

    Alberto Manguel, Independent
  • "An extraordinary story of passion and craziness... You have to read this book"

    Isabel Allende
  • "Brilliant...a profound meditation on the nature and meaning of memory, the relationship between authors and subjects, and the anarchic drive of popular mythology...Few Latin American writers have confronted their countries' past with the wit, style and candour that Mr Martinez shows in Santa Evita...he affirms his place among Latin America's best writers"

    Nicholas Shumway, New York Times Book Review
  • "A master novel... I got choked up, I suffered, I enjoyed, and in the course of reading I picked up bad habits and betrayed my most liberal principles...Santa Evita should be banned... or read without delay"

    Mario Vargas Llosa
  • "Dazzling Gothic novel, perverse love story, impressive horror story... a beautiful book, a miracle"

    Carlos Fuentes
