Reviews

Rosero affirms unashamedly that literature can and should change social reality...--Antonio Ungar "BOMB Magazine"
The Armies is a disturbing allegory of life during wartime, in which little appears to happen while at the same time entire lives and worlds collapse.-- "(London) Times"
The translation of Good Offices (2011) is sublime. Moving from offbeat humor to soaring spritual ecstasy, it has both pathos and punch.--Maya Jaggi "The Guardian"
