"'The Graham Greene of Uruguay' Sunday Telegraph 'Latin American literature has few secrets to divulge to the English-speaking world; but one of them is the Uruguayan novelist Juan Carlos Onetti' Guardian 'The Graham Greene of Uruguay... foreshadowing the work of Beckett and Camus' Sunday Telegraph 'The Onetti experience is a curious one: readers end up feeling that they understand life better after a stay in this ghostly, tantalising world, only to lose the wisdom they have gained after a few hours of release from the spell. The form is subtle and delicate, the message sordid and bleak, the flavour inimitable' Guardian 'Onetti's voice and subject matter are his own... his work is always on a knife-edge... He is laconic, elegant, literary' London Review of Books"
