"Brilliant and devastating and incredibly beautiful." -- Chris Faatz - Powells.com "Brilliantly funny and unsettling... Castellanos Moya has turned anxiety into an art form and an act of rebellion, and redeemed paranoia as a positive indicator of rot." -- Natasha Wimmer - The Nation "A welcome, eye-opening addition to this new literature of the Latin American nightmare." -- Anderson Tepper - Time Out New York "Acid humor, like a Buster Keaton movie or a time bomb." -- Roberto Bolano
