Críticas:

"This is an approach to storytelling that can leave the first-time reader feeling mired in its self-attentions. But that should be expected given that the novel wants to inculcate a sense of metaphysical entanglement as it explores two of the most rudimentary concerns of human life: love and death ... As a work of devout humanism, this novel is conceived around the best sorts of frustrations." Christopher Byrd, Barnes and Noble Review
"One gets the sense that Fernandez would be disappointed in the "progress" of the contemporary novel. Ours is a culture that values orderly stories, but "skip around" readers will enjoy meandering about Fernandez's cabinet of wonders." Jim Ruland, ""

He also wrote the -Last Bad Novel- (Adriana Buenos Aires) and the -First Good One- (The Museum of Eterna's Novel).
Margaret Schwartz is an assistant professor at Fordham University. She was a Fulbright fellow to Argentina in 2004, during which time she researched the life and works of Macedonio Fernandez.
Adam Thirlwell is the author of the novels Politics and The Escape. His book about literature and translation, The Delighted States, won the Somerset Maugham Award in 2008. He has twice been named as one of Granta's -Best Young British Novelists.-
