PRAISE FOR SEPHARAD Shame and guilt, homelands and exile, ceaseless wanderings and bitter alienations both internal and external, metaphorical and real, are persistent motifs of Munoz Molina's remarkable novel--one that turns out to be about a territory far vaster than 'Sepharad' itself: Europe, perhaps even the world . . . [A] masterpiece.--Daniel Mendelsohn, The New York Review of Books
A magnificent novel about the iniquity and horror of fanaticism, and especially the human being's indestructible spirit.--Mario Vargas Llosa
