Reviews

Aira is unencumbered. He does what he does, and what we receive is giddy, unquestionably self-indulgent, and yet absolutely perfect.--Kamil Ahsan - NPR
Sui generis is really the only way to accurately describe César Aira. He's by turns a realist, a magical realist and a surrealist -- and therefore not really any of them. Anything can happen in an Aira novel, and almost everything does.--Tyler Malone - Los Angeles Times
