Reviews

Brilliantly funny and unsettling. Despite his estrangement from his country and his merciless criticism of it, he has put El Salvador on the literary map, giving it an international existence.--Natasha Wimmer
A welcome, eye-opening addition to this new literature of the Latin American nightmare.--Anderson Tepper
Castellanos Moya can be a brilliant practitioner of edge of collapse, culling searing narratives of exile and estrangement.--Julia Haav
The only writer of my generation who knows how to narrate the horror, the secret Vietnam that Latin America was for a long time.--Roberto Bolan o
Tyrant Memory stands out because of its scrupulous evocation of an atmosphere of conspiracy and its use of historical events.
