"Ray Loriga is a fascinating cross between Marguerite Duras and Jim Thompson."
--Pedro Almodóvar

"[Surrender is] a Kafkaesque and Orwellian story about authority and collective manipulation, a parable on our societies exposed to the gaze and judgment of all. Through the use of a modest and thoughtful voice, with unexpected bursts of humor, the author constructs a luminous fable about exile, loss, paternity and attachment."
--Alfaguara Prize Winner Citation

"[Surrender's] climax packs abundant weight...this novel has plenty of power."
--Kirkus Reviews

"Loriga can be considered the originator of writing that moves away from Spanish realism, to mental monologue in a desolate landscape, as if taken from a Hopper painting, with protagonists whose only social nucleus, generally broken, is that of refined writing, of short paragraphs, that does not describe but rather goes, silently, like the tires of a car on a highway."
--La Vanguardia
