Reviews

If translators are the anonymous heroes of contemporary literature, its anonymous superhero is Gregory Rabassa.
Widely considered one of the greatest practitioners of his craft.
In this supple narrative, packed with erudition and yet leavened by Rabassa's mordant, often self-effacing wit, less becomes more.
An insider's view that is available nowhere else, and everyone, neophytes as well as past or present Spanish majors, can profit from it.
The best Latin American writer in the English language.--Gabriel García Márquez
