Exactly the kind of novel I wanted to read from an Ecuadorian writer, one where the city or the country is becoming a character in the story. But this novel has few other great characters as well, like the The Criple, The Turk, The Maestro or Doc. It is really a great master piece from characters point of view.

Ambitiøs og ikke helt uinteressant roman fra Ecuador, som imidlertid falder på for lidt handling og på en for selvbevidst skrivestil, der grænser til det litterært prætentiøse.

la reseña en la edicion en castellano (qeu tengo) no adelanta nada de lo qeu ésta, en ingles. MENOS MAL, no lo hubiera leido. El texto va muy bien, mejor de lo esperado. Excelentes retratos contemporaneos.
