Felisberto, I will always love you!

—Julio Cortázar

The voice is unlike anything one has come across anywhere in literature – in touch with profound chambers of the mind.

The Nation

Poetry that transforms the ordinary into the uncanny.

Bookforum

Excellent … miraculously alive … wonderful.

The New York Times Book Review

A loopier, vegetarian Kafka, inhabiting his mazy personal baroque.

—Michael Hofmann, The London Times Literary Supplement

A vision of such startling beauty that it flares up like an old-fashioned phosphorous match and illuminates our whole lives.

—Francine Prose

If I hadn’t read the stories of Felisberto Hernández in 1950, I wouldn’t be the writer I am today.

—Gabriel García Marquez
