Product description

Review

"Beautifully constructed and very rich."

"A brilliant, fearful, and unforgettable book."

"Munoz Molina writes the novels of the people he's met and imagined, gleaning from the names he encounters stories that vibrate beneath the burden of history, that lift with the breath of human life."

"This book is no boneless 'meditation'; it has all the onward rush and effortfulness of an epic, and it's studded with the terrible stories you hear from acquaintances in 'the insomniac world of travelers.'"

"Beautifully constructed and very rich."


"A brilliant, fearful, and unforgettable book."


"Obsessive in its detail, inspiring in its scope and monumental in its ambitions...smart and insightful...intellectually demanding..."


"This is the land of the marked, the fated, the terminally ill, and we should be grateful that Munoz Molina is our brave guide in this world."


"Will intrigue and enthrall determined readers willing to let this thoughtful writer lead them through history into the hearts of exiles at home and abroad."


"Now that American readers have the opportunity to encounter Molina, we may want to adopt him as our own...Together his sketches comprise a harrowing sketch of private life in the 20th century."


"Munoz Molina writes the novels of the people he''s met and imagined, gleaning from the names he encounters stories that vibrate beneath the burden of history, that lift with the breath of human life."


"This book is no boneless ''meditation''; it has all the onward rush and effortfulness of an epic, and it''s studded with the terrible stories you hear from acquaintances in ''the insomniac world of travelers.''"


"Elegiacally beautiful...Calling on such inspiring figures as Franz Kafka and Primo Levi for guidance. Munoz Molina creates astute, deeply felt, and exquisitely expressive testimony to love, suffering, and the astonishing fecundity of human consciousness."


"One might argue against such a literary appropriation of the Holocaust, yet Munoz Molina''s urgent desire to bear witness to it, even though at a remove, and his very sensitive ability to evoke the humiliations of its victims makes Sepharad an amazing book. The Margaret Sayers Peden translation is excellent. Read it."


"Moving and often astonishing."
