  • Both deeply thoughtful and immensely playful ... Here we have a kind of magical realism for science fiction ... What is at the heart of every incident, every interlude, is a luminous exploration of humanity: love, power, death, the known and the unknown ... Contemplative, provoking, bizarre - and brilliant. Quite, quite brilliant

  • A novel that is unlike anything I've ever read, one part pulp adventure to one part realistic depiction of the affluent, nearly-idle bourgeoisie, but always leaning more towards the former in its inventiveness and pure sense of fun

    Los Angeles Review of Books
  • Understated and impressive ... Gorodischer takes well-worn tropes in entertaining directions that both evoke their golden age roots and transcend them with a layer of absurdism. A joy to read

    Publisher's Weekly
  • Gorodischer's tales are a perfect blend of Argentine reality and sci-fi fantasy. The reader can hear every word of the original whispered behind this translation by Amalia Gladhart
