“Writers have always been among the first to intuit that silenced stories need to be told, and that ugly secrets kept undercover by individuals and families oftentimes are a metaphor for the collective crimes of a nation.” – Prof. Fernando Reati, Georgia State University

“The question of the role of madness recurs throughout the novel, while the narrative presents and deconstructs violent stories of power and abuse within a patriarchal family from Córdoba and the text dismantles myths associated with the literary male tradition.” – Prof. Susana Chas, Universidad Nacional de Córdoba
