    Elena Hevia, El Periódico de Catalunya.

    Incisivo, perturbador, asombroso en su agudeza, Mágico, sombrío, impenetrable evidencia los angeles portentosa capacidad de los angeles «firme candidata al Premio Nobel» de Literatura para poner l. a. lupa sobre el amor, el dolor, l. a. incertidumbre y también l. a. ironía que acechan l. a. vida de cualquiera de nosotros. Los vínculos eróticos que surgen del miedo, l. a. gratitud o l. a. distancia; l. a. vulnerabilidad de una mujer temerosa de que su marido esté desapareciendo de su vida; un nacimiento que trae consigo el ultimate de una relación, o el polémico relato que da título al libro, donde el anciano poeta Robert Frost recibe l. a. visita de una inquietante joven que sabe más de lo que debería...

    La crítica ha dicho...
    «Los libros de Oates desnudan sin eufemismos nuestra condición humana. Oates nos ayuda a entendernos, o al menos eso es lo que he sentido al leerla.»
    Carlos Salinas, El Confidencial

    «Escribe magistralmente del dolor, el amor, los angeles incertidumbre, el miedo, el erotismo, el sexo...»

    «Aún sin perder de vista el realismo más visceral, sus novelas juegan con lo gótico, un gótico norteño que los angeles aproxima al Faulkner más siniestro, el de El ruido y l. a. furia
    Laura Fernández, El Mundo

    «Una fuerza narradora casi sobrehumana... los angeles gran mayoría de estos thirteen relatos son excelentes brebajes servidos al punto para ser saboreados. Oates es escritora de prosa clara y efectiva, pero no hay que confiarse en exceso. Con l. a. mano izquierda hace acordes, pero con los angeles derecha acaricia las teclas de un piano hasta dar con esas dos o tres notas que generan esa melodía misteriosa, introspectiva, que reconoces como telúrica: el pellizco de los angeles literatura. Caminas por sus textos sabiendo que en esa area hay enterradas tijeras abiertas, y acabarás reconociéndote en cortes y heridas.»
    Carlos Zanón, Babelia

    «La gran autora norteamericana desciende al territorio del miedo en su nuevo libro... Oates sabe hacer novelas gigantes de sentimientos pequeños, logra belleza de l. a. monstruosidad. Un vigoroso conjunto de relatos con los que descose y recose las almas azotadas de los angeles gente.»

    Berna González Harbour, Babelia

    «Cautivadores, tristes compasivos e inquietantes. Siguen capturando los angeles incertidumbre, el dolor y los angeles oscuridad del inside de todos nosotros.»
    J.R. Scrafford, Washington Independent

    «Una recopilación con mucha fuerza, muy expresiva. Oates continúa en pleno fragor de los angeles batalla por el autocontrol y los angeles verdad.»
    André Van Loon, The Star

    «Oates es un gigante entre nosotros. Una obra tan viva y tan revitalizante como cualquiera de las anteriores, dentro del ya tan distinguido corpus literario de Oates.»
    Alan Cheuse, NPR Books

    «Una de las más grandes escritoras del último medio siglo. Con su prosa incisiva y acerada, bella en su aparente frialdad y good a pesar de su tremenda crudeza, los angeles norteamericana es autora de muchos cuentos y varias novelas sobresalientes. Una leyenda viva de los angeles literatura.»
    Daniel Martín, República.com
