Product description


"Delirio is a Colombian story, an expression of everything that fascinates us about Colombia, including what's terrifyingly fascinating. Restrepo has a total mastery over what she writes, an astonishing but absolute mastery. Delirio is one of the finest novels written in recent memory." (Jose Saramago)

"This barrio angel teaches us to see behind the appearance of things and how to embrace reality with all the senses." (Isabel Allende)

"A writer who illuminates a world." (Washington Post Book World)

"Laura Restrepo's Delirium has an aesthetic distinction worthy of her precursors Garcia Marquez and Saramago. Like them, her narrative sense of erotic derangement is elaborately nuanced. Ultimately she seems to me an authentic descendent of the greatest New World author and seer of eros, Walt Whitman." (Harold Bloom)

"This beautiful and disturbing book haunted me during the days I read it and long after I put it down. Love, unknowability, loss, and even various forms of gain elide from one to another of its passionate, unnerving voices." (Vikram Seth)

Book Description

A beautiful and unsettling story from the one the finest Latin American authors.
