  • [A] haunting, poetic novel

    Michael Kerrigan, Guardian
  • One of the finest tours de force published anywhere, in any language

    Eileen Battersby, Irish Times

    Michael Kerrigan, Guardian
  • Rivas, ably translated here by Jonathan Dunne, combines a lyric gift, full of rich imagery and a touch of fantasy, with bald, direct prose
