Críticas:

"This intensely powerful memoir touches depths yet unheard of in contemporary writing. I read it at one sitting and wondered for days after about love, time, and truth. Can't get me any more excited than this."--Andrei Codrescu, author of "The Poetry Lesson"

"Lidia Yuknavitch isn't afraid of anything. We need her sudden cyclonic no-holds-barred wisdom more than ever right now, to hold our feet to the fire, to make us brave in the face of our own impotence, to kick our artistic asses into gear."--Pam Houston, author of "Contents May Have Shifted"

"You can make the case that Lidia Yuknavitch is the most compelling writer alive. "The Small Backs of Children" has moments of s?ance with writers like Jean Rhys and Clarice Lispector. I felt bewitched, possessed, destroyed, and yet I'd do it again."--Porochista Khakpour

"The Small Backs of Children" is intelligent yet accessible, provocative in the best ways, complex yet tightly plotted and riveting. The characters are beautifully drawn, and together their story raises important questions-about violence, art, sex, and survival-that are both timely and enduring. And the writing-the writing is sublime.--Whitney Otto

"There are a handful of books that have changed the way I move through the world. "The Small Backs of Children" is one of them. Lidia Yuknavitch writes with sly, subversive, nervy, compassionate madness. She is one of the great American writers."--Chelsea Cain, "New York Times" bestselling author

"Yuknavitch moves through narratives and structures like a literary banshee seeking a body. Fast, visceral, "The Small Backs of Children" is a gunshot meditation on art and violence and I couldn't put it down."--Vanessa Veselka, author of "Zazen"

"All my youth I gloried in the wild, exulting, rollercoaster prose and questing narratives of Henry Miller, Charles Bukowski, and Jack Kerouac, but cringed at the misogyny; couldn't we have the former without the latter? We can, because: Lidia Yuknavitch. Buckle your seat belts; it's gonna be a wild feminist ride."--Rebecca Solnit, author of "Men Explain Things to Me" and "The Faraway Nearby"

Y"uknavitch is a gifted writer whose dizzying passages are often as compelling as they are grotesque."--"Kirkus Reviews"

Reseña del editor:

National Bestseller

A masterful literary talent explores the treacherous, often violent borders between war and sex, love and art.

With the flash of a camera, one girl s life is shattered, and a host of others altered forever. . .

In a war-torn village in Eastern Europe, an American photographer captures a heart-stopping image: a young girl flying toward the lens, fleeing a fiery explosion that has engulfed her home and family. The image wins acclaim and prizes, becoming an icon for millions and a subject of obsession for one writer, the photographer s best friend, who has suffered a devastating tragedy of her own.

As the writer plunges into a suicidal depression, her filmmaker husband enlists several friends, including a fearless bisexual poet and an ingenuous performance artist, to save her by rescuing the unknown girl and bringing her to the United States. And yet, as their plot unfolds, everything we know about the story comes into question: What does the writer really want? Who is controlling the action? And what will happen when these two worlds east and west, real and virtual collide?

A fierce, provocative, and deeply affecting novel of both ideas and action that blends the tight construction of Julian Barnes s The Sense of an Ending with the emotional power of Anthony Marra s A Constellation of Vital Phenomena, Lidia Yuknavitch s The Small Backs of Children is a major step forward from one of our most avidly watched writers.
