New novellas from Aira are always a cause for celebration.

—Brian Evenson

With many prolific writers it’s a case of diminishing returns. César Aira, who’s published over eighty books with more to come, is an exception, his open-ended, genre trespassing novellas attesting to his peculiar virtuosity.

—John Madera, Big Other

South America’s answer to Haruki Murakami.

—Andrew Irvin, The Miami Harold

Uncanny imagination à la Calvino.

—Laura Pearson, The Chicago Tribune

Irreverent inventiveness … without analogue in contemporary literature.

—Megan Doll, The Chicago Tribune

César Aira is wild. The laws of gravity do not apply.

—James S. A. Correy, The Denver Post
