  • [Gimlette's] account is so rich in anecdotes, so suffused in color and dialect that we are left with a sense of having somehow inhaled all this Paraguayan history and then experienced it through a nightmare or a dream.

    New York Times
  • Full of surprises, this is a riveting read

    Sunday Telegraph
  • Off the wall title, and a great off centre enjoyment, with a smashing, entertaining piece of writing...

    Manchester Evening News
  • John Gimlette's extraordinary book, part history, part travelogue, is so vivid that nobody reading it is ever likely to forget the country. - Max Davidson
