"'In Carlos Rojas' splendid and wildly creative novel, the dead writer watches his last, fateful days replayed in a private theater in the underworld... as intelligent and audacious a meditation on art, fate and mortality as anyone could hope to read.' (Los Angeles Times) 'Mr. Rojas includes a number of shrewd homages to his subject, from echoes of poems to the kind of story-within-a-story structures that Lorca used in his dramas. But more important, this moving tribute cuts to the heart of the dichotomy of the poet's troubled immortality.' (Sam Sacks, The Wall Street Journal)"
