“A special emotion. A very absorbing novel showing power mechanisms that are still in force today and where the formal elegance of the narration is transformed into atmosphere and pure feeling.” – Julián Herbert
“Anna Thalberg offers us a combination of formal virtuosity with an absolutely gripping rhythm.” – Fernanda Melchor
“Anna Thalberg is a strong and distinct literary debut from a promising young novelist. Not only the precise psychological and historical investigation of the novel captivates the reader, but Eduardo Sangarcía’s bold formal experimentations hold and bring the whole project further in a personal artistic direction. Exploring in-depth the violences of the past, Anna Thalberg contributes to understanding the ones of the present times.” – Simon Philippe Turcot, La Peuplade
“…wildly innovative, a major contribution to literature, in Chile and beyond, that deals with trauma and its aftermath.” – The New York Times Book Review
“Nona Fernández helps us glimpse the horrible reality of torture in luminous prose of great intelligence and obsessive sincerity.” – Fernanda Melchor, author of Hurricane Season

“Juan Emar, ahead of his time, was no doubt writing for readers of the future, and it’s as arrogant as it is exciting to suppose that those readers of the future are us.” – Alejandro Zambra
“Juan Emar, the Chilean writer who bears a marked resemblance to the monument to the unknown soldier.” – Roberto Bolaño
“A master storyteller [and]…a surreal delight!” – Mark Haber, Southwest Review Review
