Críticas:

"Gaitskill writes so radiantly about violent self-loathing that the very incongruousness of her language has shocking power." - Janet Maslin, "The New York Times"
"Gaitskill deserves some sort of monument [for this] beautiful, devastating new novel...There are paragraphs like poems in" Veronica" that lure you back, over and over." --"Elle"
"Sensuous and precise..."Veronica" captures the nexus between the erotic glamour [of the 1980's] and its epic heartlessness." -"Entertainment Weekly"
"Gaitskill has written a novel that will leave you shaking and joyful simultaneously, dizzy with the proximity of private terror and bottomless hope." -- "O Magazine"
"Gaitskill writes from the gut . . . [Her] characters bleed, sweat, cry, and they experience sadness, anger and love as much as a physical sensation as an emotion." -"San Francisco Chronicle
""Gaitskill's style is gorgeously caustic . . . Her ability to capture abstract feelings and sensations with a prescise and unexpected metaphor is a squirmy delight to encounter in such abundance." -- Heidi Julavits, "Pubishers Weekly"
""Veronica "is a masterly examination of the relationship between surface and self, culture and fashion, time and memory . . . Gaitskill's brand of brainy lyricism, of acid shot through with grace, is unlike anyone else's . . . Her palpable talent puts her among the most eloquent and perceptive contemporary fiction writers." --Meghan O'Rourke, "New York Times Book Review"
""[Veronica]" creates an atmosphere, provokes a response, and suffuses us with an emotion that we can easily, all too easily, summon up. It's art that you can continue to see even with your eyes closed." -Francine Prose,"Slate"

Reseña del editor:

Alison and Veronica meet amid the nocturnal glamour of 1980s New York: One is a young model stumbling away from the wreck of her career, the other an eccentric middle-aged office temp. Over the next twenty years their friendship will encompass narcissism and tenderness, exploitation and self-sacrifice, love and mortality. Moving seamlessly from present and past, casting a fierce yet compassionate eye on two eras and their fixations, the result is a work of timeless depth and moral power.
