Editorial Reviews


«Una narración personal e intimista... Vuong es un escritor sólido y audaz, y su primera novela es muy potente» (Kevin Canfield, San Francisco Chronicle).

«Vuong es magistral creando imágenes impresionistas e imborrables… La novela contiene algunas de las páginas más conmovedoras que he leído en mi vida sobre dos chicos experimentando juntos… Un libro espléndido» (Justin Torres, The New York Times Book Review).

«Una obra maestra… Valiente, reveladora y extraordinaria» (Literary Journal). «Un texto crudo y luminoso» (Kirkus Reviews).

«Una de las novelas más hermosas que he leído, una maravilla literaria y una pieza de una extraordinaria humanidad. Una verdadera obra maestra» (Max Porter).

«Una carta de amor herida e imponente que nunca se enviará. Un poderoso testimonio de la magia y la pérdida. Una maravilla» (Marlon James).

«Vuong se enfrenta a los límites del lenguaje (…) y expande nuestra percepción de lo que la literatura puede hacer visible, pensable y sentible a través de fronteras y generaciones y géneros» (Ben Lerner).

«Uno no tiene muy a menudo la oportunidad de aplicar palabras como “brillante” y “extraordinaria” a muchas novelas, y menos a una primera novela. Gracias, Ocean Vuong, por esta brillante y extraordinaria primera novela» (Michael Cunningham).
