Carl Stevens rated it it was amazing Jan 03, Litro Magazine review by Bella Whittington: Jun 23, David rated it really liked it.

Will Buckingham rated it liked it Jul 09, An admirably ambitious book.
But this chapter comes after a good five hundred pages of prose that twists and turns with pyrotechnic wit, and creates a complex vision of a Buenos Aires in which reality melts, disintegrates and reforms before our eyes. No trivia or quizzes yet. His writing is compelling and once I started, made the book hard to put down. Advanced Technique for Breathing. If the Falklands conflict is the heart of this novel, it is through a distorted and kaleidoscopic viewing glass that we read and understand it.
