“An enjoyable journey through the mind of a magnificent Spanish author.”
- Publishers Weekly
“I don't know Vila-Matas personally, nor am I planning to meet him. I prefer to read him and let his literature pervade me.”
- Pedro Almódovar
“An elegant and ironic writer. Vila-Matas is one of Spain's most distinguished novelists.”
- Rachel Nolan, The New York Times
“Enrique Vila-Matas has pioneered one of the contemporary literature's most interesting responses to the great Modernist writers.”
- The Paris Review
“Vila-Matas leads the reader through a whimsical tour of art installations and occurrences, all the while referencing authors and artists that enhance how his narrator perceives (e.g. Kafka, Walser, Roussel, Gaddis, Duchamp, Dali, and Calle).”
- Rob Stephenson, Rain Taxi
“For Vila-Matas, literature is a chamber of echoes. But rather than thinking of this as a criticism, this is to be embraced―one of literature’s eternal beauties.”
- Tristan Foster, Words Without Borders
“Vila-Matas is a remarkable ironist, a skill he deploys throughout Kassel and A Brief History as sly humour, but also as a destabilization technique to create nebulous, discomfiting spaces…”
- Pasha Mall, The Globe and Mail
