Reviews

Mr. Vila-Matas shows that the reasons for (and the consequences of) not writing fiction can, in a funny way, be almost as rich and complicated as fiction itself.
[Vila-Matas is] one of the most curious, original and attractive talents in contemporary Spanish writing.--Rafael Conte
Vila-Matas's touch is light and whimsical, while his allusions encompass a rogue's gallery of world literature.
