"Sylvia Aguilar Zéleny has constructed a novel that impregnates itself into the skin and the nose: Garbage. Not infrequently, I was submerged into its pages and suddenly felt that something around me smelled awful. And it's the truth: something smells awful in this country." --Óscar Alarcón, El Popular

"The masterful way that Sylvia Aguilar Zéleny develops the characters is evidence that the author has a high level of narrative power." --Raul Picazo, Crash
