Ý"Almendra" is¨ a masterly work Ýthat¨ leaves the reader breathless." --Luis de la Pena, "La Razon" (Spain)  Praise for "Captain of the Sleepers: """  "Montero probes Ýthe¨ depths of inner ruin with the gelid calm and lucid exactitude that belies her characters' tortured passions and the story's tropical settings . . .

ÝMontero is¨ a worthy peer for the likes of Mario Vargas Llosa." --Oscar Villalon, "San Francisco Chronicle"
