"Olguín is a fine writer with an easy style, aided by a very readable translation by Miranda France"

Olguín is a fine writer with an easy style, aided by a very readable translation by Miranda France. He could give us more of a sense of place, and Buenos Aires is more of a backdrop than a character. This is the first of a trilogy featuring Rosenthal. The series has already been turned into a television series and I’m looking forward to the next volume.
