Reviews

"Dolores Reyes's writing is visceral and urgent. It's also connected to a powerful tradition of fantasy and crime, and it reflects on violence against women with enormous lucidity."--Mariana Enriquez, author of Things We Lost in the Fire
"In a voice that is terse, blunt, and biting, the narrator reckons with the impact of her visions on her health and relationships, as she witnesses more and more the ways fear and violence shape the experiences of the women in her community. Compelling and visceral, Reyes' debut combines mystery and coming-of-age to evoke the stories of the victims of femicide." --Kirkus Reviews
"A powerful story whose narrator wields brutally honest observations on the intersections of class, poverty, and gender. Reyes' debut is a strong addition to the growing body of Latin American crime fiction in the U.S. market. A stirring genre blend of fantasy and crime fiction that combines graceful prose and magic realism." --Booklist (starred review)
"One of the most outstanding Latin American short novels of the year."--New York Times
"Dolores Reyes's harsh and sensitive lyricism explodes in your hands."--Gabriela Cabezรณn Cรกmara, author of The Adventures of China Iron
With its own shining light and singular voice, Eartheater follows in the footsteps of such essential authors as Juan Rulfo and Sara Gallardo."--Selva Almada, author of The Wind That Lays Waste
"Reyes succeeds in making the feisty Eartheater and her visions both persuasive and affecting."--Library Journal (starred review)
