"One of those rare books that emerges from the clashing of several schools of literature, filled with sad young literary men and women, tortured by art and life and their creations. If The Savage Detectives had a younger, rowdier sibling, this is it."
—Fernando A. Flores, author of Valleyesque and Tears of the Trufflepig
