Reviews

A cult masterpiece. The author has been compared to Joyce and Proust.--Enrique Vila-Matas
Grips and perturbs the reader simultaneously.
A great novel.--Alejandro Zambra
A sublime explosion that results from an unpredictable art.
An Argentinian masterpiece.
A provocative, meticulous novel that's both utterly repulsive and morbidly fascinating.
An emotionally (and physically) harrowing account of isolation, violence, and hypocrisy.--Tobias Carroll
A marvel.--Will Noah (04/20/2018)
Elegant prose.--The Desert and Its Seed (04/24/2018)
The Desert and Its Seed chronicles the aftermath of an attack identical to the one that Baron Biza's father perpetrated against his mother. Baron Biza maintains [a] mixture of unflinching scrutiny and cool lyricism through the novel. It feels strikingly of the moment, as a resurgent feminist movement draws attention to the wide scope of misogyny.--Alejandro Chacoff
