“Pitol is a writer of another kind: his importance lies on the page, in the creation of his own world, in his ability to shed light on the world.” ― Daniel Saldaña Paris, author of Among Strange Victims

“Pitol is probably one of Mexico’s most culturally complex and composite writers. He is certainly the strangest, most unfathomable and eccentric. . . . [His] voice . . . reverberates beyond the margins of his books.” ― Valeria Luiselli, author of Faces in the Crowd

“Reading him, one has the impression . . . of being before the greatest writer in the Spanish language in our time.” ― Enrique Vila-Matas

“A gorgeous, insight into literature, history, and a life lived through words. Sergio Pitol is one of Mexico’s greatest authors.” ― Mark Haber, Brazos Bookstore (Houston, Texas)
