Críticas:

"A startling picaresque unlike one might have read or imagined . . . [Carson's] real inventiveness is the oddly engaging, oddly distancing story told in fragments that don't want to end in a moral. . . . Essential reading for poetry sophisticates." --Barbara Hoffert, "Library Journal" (starred review)
""Red Doc>" is a clock that takes the measure of its readers and their world by entrancing them with anachronism and myth. . . .Carson explores questions like: can studying the past help us to understand the present or to prepare for the future? Do we need hindsight? Are the past and present continuous? Carson shows us that what stands between contemporary readers and the ancient world only appears to be substantial. Peering into the prose""'documents' that account for history from a safe distance, Carson suggests, we risk falling into [an] abyss, a volcanic past that promises to flow into the present and freeze itself over our shapes. Our mythic heroes suffer from PTSD. We're about to be covered up with ash, even though no one smokes anymore. "Red Doc>" manages to tell, along with Geryon's story, something of the toll the last 15 years have taken all of us, and the earth. The characters' grief for losses sustained in their anachronistic, mythic world becomes an elegy of losses in our own." --Emily Anderson, "Full Stop"
"Striking . . . Exhilarating . . . Carson has a reputation for difficulty, which is actually identical to her sense of playfulness. . . . Whimsy and obliquity dance hand in hand. . . . "Red Doc>" remains lucid and accessible, vernacular, friendly even, without sacrificing its iridescent, surrealist sheen. . . . Reading [it] is like being plunged under an iceberg: same world, same old friends, strange new light. . . . Carson bends time. She contracts universes . . . "Red Doc>" is a consummate love story, a book about friendship, companionship, motherhood, sex. It charts the failures of mutations of love, their imperfections, their infide

"Breathtaking. . . . Personal, necessary and important. . . . Read this book. You'll find it hard to forget." --"The New York Times Book Review"
"A supraliterary, textually experimental landscape that only Carson could conjure. Ranging from frozen tundra to festive meadows, G's odyssey features his dying mother, his war-veteran road-buddy lover, and a female artist friend in a wild hybrid narrative pushed to mythopoetic glory." --"Elle"
"Carson's lyrical language effortlessly lifts pure moments of hope and despair off the page. . . . "Red Doc>" stands on its own--and takes the reader on a singular journey of longing and grief." --"San Francisco Chronicle"
"Carson's red-winged anti-hero is still the crown prince of erotic, melancholy foibles. . . . Whether she's talking war vets, flying cows, Latin etymology or Elvis, Carson once again blurs the lines of prose and poetry." --"American Poet"
"Unexpected, dizzying.... Sure to be the verse event of the season." --"Vogue.com
"
"[Carson's] phrases and images ... swoop and beguile like hidden messages. Cryptograms from other civilizations, or hoaxes perpetrated by pranksters by moonlight? Say what you will about Carson, she doesn't play it safe." --"The New York Observer
"
"For every line of Carson's that's grave and pensive, another is funny, erotic, demotic, or dirty.... Even when the setting gets surreal, Carson never breaks faith with ordinary emotion. Red Doc> is, at times, excruciating in its grief. Yet just when it threatens to become unbearable, just when you are hurling at terminal velocity toward the killing earth--just then everything that seemed broken comes together. Suddenly you are borne into the sky on words and stories, those human wings, up there with a thousand ice bats and a kind-hearted monster and a stoner cow and a solid column of volcanic smoke, seamed with brilliant flame." --"New York Magazine
"
"A shape-shifting verse novel that's both playful and compelling." --"Time Out New York
"
"The events in Red Doc>, not so much recounted as erupting, have an instability suggestive of Alice in Wonderland.... As with a roller coaster, the transitions make us look forward to the next splendid plunge. And we plunge." --"The Boston Globe
"
"Carson swings through a variety of techniques that refract the madness of war, from the systemic absurdism of Catch-22 to the post-modern flights of Gravity's Rainbow to the dead-bang temporal concussions of The Things They Carried.... Carson is funny--Lorrie Moore funny, Grace Paley funny--and Red Doc> courses with a wit shot through with intelligence and humility.... Brushed with the magical, the absurd and the surreal." --"Paste
"
"Parts of this book are shockingly moving, especially when she describes the impending death of G's mother. The poetry around their final meeting is strangely haunting in an understated way. It presents loss and our tenuous human interconnectedness in its fragile and mysterious passing.... Inspired." --"The Globe and Mail "(Toronto)
""Red Doc>" is the sequel--sort of--to "Autobiography of Red," one of the crossover classics of contemporary poetry. The book is strange and sweet and funny, and the remoteness of the ancient myth crossed with the familiarity of the modern setting creates a particularly Carsonian effect: the paradox of distant closeness." --"The New York Times Magazine"
" "
"If there is one book I've pressed on more people in the past decade, it is Carson's "Autobiography of Red." And I'm here to tell you its sequel has just been published, and that it's pretty much the biggest event of the year.... "Red Doc> "is insightful, whimsical, erotic and sad.... If you like books to provoke you, dare you, even change the way you think, let me recommend this strange, wonderful pair of novels about a young red man. We all have volcanoes in our lives. Sometimes it takes someone else to show us how to survive them." --Rosecrans Baldwin, "NPR"

Reseña del editor:

**New York Magazine's Top 10 Books of 2013**
**GoodReads Reader s Choice Award Winner**
Some years ago I wrote a book about a boy named Geryon who was red and had wings and fell in love with Herakles. Recently I began to wonder what happened to them in later life. Red Doc> continues their adventures in a very different style and with changed names.
To live past the end of your myth is a perilous thing.
