Reviews

An enjoyable journey through the mind of a magnificent Spanish author.
An elegant and ironic writer. Vila-Matas is one of Spain's most distinguished novelists.--Rachel Nolan
Enrique Vila-Matas has pioneered one of the contemporary literature's most interesting responses to the great Modernist writers.
Vila-Matas leads the reader through a whimsical tour of art installations and occurrences, all the while referencing authors and artists that enhance how his narrator perceives (e.g. Kafka, Walser, Roussel, Gaddis, Duchamp, Dali, and Calle).--Rob Stephenson
For Vila-Matas, literature is a chamber of echoes. But rather than thinking of this as a criticism, this is to be embraced--one of literature's eternal beauties.--Tristan Foster
I don't know Vila-Matas personally, nor am I planning to meet him. I prefer to read him and let his literature pervade me.--Pedro Almódovar
