Cuando vi este libro ignoraba que pertenecía a la "serie de Mogador". Al saberlo, mis expectativas bajaron (Los Jardines Secretos de Mogador no fue lo que esperaba), y tal vez eso, junto con la narrativa distinta y enredada, hizo que disfrutara mucho este libro.
Sólo la sección enfocada a los tatuajes me desagradó, pero no por el texto en si, sino por las sensaciones que me causó (muy dolorosas, físicas y mentales) con lo explícito de sus letras.

Ruy Sánchez links elements of magic realism with Arabic mysticism, invoking a sensual and spiritual mood in everyday Islamic life. His writing on literature, art, philosophy, eroticism and film has earned him a reputation as "one of Mexico’s best essayists" (Octavio Paz).

From 1984 to 1986 he was editorial secretary on the legendary magazine 'Vuelta' published by Octavio Paz. Since 1988 he has been
