really liked it
Read from January 02 to 10, 2012

DISCLAIMER: I am the publisher of the book and thus spent approximately two years reading and editing and working on it. So take my review with a grain of salt, or the understanding that I am deeply invested in this text and know it quite well. Also, I would really appreciate it if you would purchase this book, since it would benefit Open Letter directly.

Not really as tight as "My Two Worlds," but maybe more emotionally gripping. I love Heather Cleary's translation, and all the little stories that the narrator recounts from his childhood friend, especially the one about the eye and the railroad tracks. (I hope that sounds intriguing.)

It's kind of hard to review our own books on here, but I just want to say that I'm extremely proud that we took a chance on Sergio and signed on three of his books way back when. He's a fantastic writer, and one whose reputation will surely grow as more people encounter him and more books become available.
