Críticas: Praise for "The Book of My Lives
""An extraordinary story." --"The New Yorker
""At once unimaginable and unforgettable." --"Time," a Best Book of the Year
"Acute meditations on exile and otherness, and the redeeming power of language." --"The Economist," a Best Book of the Year
"As crowded as the pool of contemporary writers wrestling with the American experience has become . . . no discussion is complete without Aleksandar Hemon." --"Chicago Tribune," a Best Book of the Year

This funny, free-flowing, gloriously imperfect book has the impression of an important writer in transition, of moving from the dead toward the living, of trying to have some fun despite this land so crowded with the lost and the lamented. In the end, we are all fighting our zombie wars, and we all need stories to keep us moving. "The New York Times Book Review" (Editors Choice)

All this zombie-spiked zaniness is boosted by Hemon s adroit style, his ability to re-create in written language the comic timing of a flawless oral delivery. "The Washington Post"

A powerful, masterful work from one of our most significant literary writers, at once madcap and thoughtful, exhilarating and devastating. "The National Post "(Toronto)"

The book is funny and pleasantly loose . . . The writing is always worthy of your time. This funny, free-flowing, gloriously imperfect book has the impression of an important writer in transition, of moving from the dead toward the living, of trying to have some fun despite this land so crowded with the lost and the lamented. In the end, we are all fighting our zombie wars, and we all need stories to keep us moving. "New York Times Book Review"

Zestfully funny in his skewering of hypocrisy and pretension and warmly insightful regarding family, friendship, lust, and love, Hemon astutely ties it all together "Booklist (starred review)"

What has always been an element of sardonic humor in Hemon's work now expands into a fast-paced, darkly comic tale set in Chicago . . .deeply and comically satisfying. "The Chicago Tribune"

"The Making of Zombie Wars "is crazy in the best sense of the word, and very few authors could have pulled it off - even in its most sober moments, it's still essentially absurd. But Hemon is such a brilliant prose stylist, it's impossible not to get pulled in, not just by his sense of humor, but by his startling observations about what makes us human (or something like it). "Michael Schaub for NPR.org"

Manic and maniacally funny "Newsday"

Beautiful fiction "The Huffington Post"

Loud, flashy and crackling with animated energy. "The Houston Chronicle"

A delightful ride through an ordinary life kicking into high, crazy gear. With zombies. "Carolyn Kellogg, The Los Angeles Times"

All this zombie-spiked zaniness is boosted by Hemon's adroit style, his ability to re-create in written language the comic timing of a flawless oral delivery. "The Washington Post"

Hemon's latest novel may be as humorous as its title indicates, but "The Making of Zombie Wars" doesn't shy away from the challenging topics "Paste Magazine"

At once unimaginable and unforgettable. "Time, a Best Book of the Year on The Book of My Lives"

An extraordinary story. "The New Yorker on The Book of My Lives"

Acute meditations on exile and otherness, and the redeeming power of language. "The Economist, a Best Book of the Year on The Book of My Lives"
