This book is a trip. It's an atmospheric, meandering noir with no particular end point and I found it compelling from the jump, almost perplexingly so. I'd say it's all vibes, but that would sell Cárdenas's wonderfully strange and spellbinding prose, as well as Davis's superb translation, far too short. I'm willing to bet it's unlike anything else you've read this year. [Adrienne]
