‘Zoals de grote romans van Tolstoj en Tsjechov, bevat de roman van Clara Usón een hoeveelheid thema’s: liefde, haat, jaloezie, dood, lafheid, en verwarring over goed en kwaad. (…) Verteld met de narratieve doeltreffendheid van de negentiende-eeuwse klassiekers.’ – La Vanguardia
‘Iemand heeft gezegd dat de roman van de 21e eeuw er een zal zijn die waarheid vermengt met relativisme, oprechtheid met ironie, opbouw met afbraak, en hoop met melancholie. De roman van Clara Usón heeft dat allemaal en nog iets: menselijkheid.’ – Kirmen Uribe
