"A spectral crime story where history, far from something abstract, is embodied within a terribly tangible landscape plagued by memory and guilt...Full of stirring images, the novel brilliantly portrays the painful isolation of a world where the possibility of justice has been replaced by the senseless circulation of vengeance...Ronsino [is] one of the great stylists of the present generation."—Bomb
"A story of lost innocence and betrayal set against Argentina’s plains, Glaxo owes its aesthetic to the Western film...Evocative and full, yet suspenseful...Abrupt shifts in time and perspective...turn a story about infidelity and murder into something larger."—Globe and Mail
"Set in a dusty, stagnating town in Argentina, the novel cautiously circles around a decades-old murder, a vanished wife, and past political crimes...Allusions to John Sturges’s Last Train From Gun Hill hint at the vengeance, or justice, to come in this sly Latin American Western."—The Millions
"Subtle, closely observed...The novel packs a mean, memorable punch."—Publishers Weekly (starred)
"[A] brooding novel set on the windswept edge of the pampas…Allusive and reserved, as if peeking out at the scene of the crime from behind drawn curtains…An atmospheric mystery that is never obvious."—Kirkus Reviews
"Glaxo withholds while it testifies, like a knot tightening. Ronsino replaces the dread his characters feel with another type of horror...the real and extensive violations in Argentina’s recent history."—Propeller
"One of the strongest storytellers of his generation." —Matias Capelli, Los in Rocks (Argentina)
"A young Argentine novelist who was chosen by the Guadalajara International Book Fair as one of the 25 most interesting writers in Latin America . . . His writing offers a totally original vision." —La Pulseada (Argentina)
"Glaxo revolves around conflicts that may seem small, but are linked to grand emotions and experiences: envy, sex, crimes of passion, and betrayal." —Pagina 12 (Argentina)

Mr Ronsino's credentials indicates that he is a sought after Latin American author. I would like to read a longer book that he has published and had translated into English. That would undoubtedly be a more rewarding way to develop an opinion about him as an author.
