Reviews
"Lobo Antunes' experience as a soldier stationed in colonially occupied Angola marked and altered him--perhaps made him the writer he is today. The brutality and mendacity of that time surges back to the fore in this new book, which unfolds in 23 chapters, each just one long sentence. . . . Weaving in and out of a symphony of voices, the novel feels more like music than prose."--John Freeman, Literary Hub
"A damning, synoptic depiction of conflict, filled with indelible scenes . . . Remarkable . . . Lobo Antunes concocts a fitting form for post-colonial reckonings."--Bailey Trela, Full Stop
"Lobo Antunes's prose is dense and recursive, chunks of thought masterfully split or spliced with dialogical interjections . . . With an aching lyricism and a set of family relations worthy of Faulkner's darkest, Until Stones Become Lighter Than Water is a book that begs rereading."--Grant Schatzman, World Literature Today
