Editorial Reviews

Review

El jurado ha destacado que Salvar el fuego  «es una novela polifónica que narra con intensidad y con excepcional dinamismo una historia de violencia en el México contemporáneo donde el amor y la redención aún son posibles. El autor se sirve tanto de una extraordinaria fuerza visual como de la recreación y reinvención del lenguaje coloquial para lograr una obra de inquietante verosimilitud. Los distintos planos narrativos tienen como hilo conductor el cuerpo humano, motivo de celebración y expuesto a numerosos excesos.»

Review

The jury highlighted that Salvar el fuego / Saving the Fire “is a polyphonic novel that narrates, with intensity and with exceptional vitality and vigor, a history of violence in contemporary Mexico where love and redemption are still possible. The author uses both an extraordinary visual force and the recreation and reinvention of colloquial language to achieve a work of great credibility. The different narrative planes use the human body as their conductive liaison, which offers reasons for celebration and exposed excesses.” --This text refers to the paperback edition.
