Críticas:

"A triumph of voice.... The writing... is spare, but heartbreaking."--USA Today

"Richard Ford returns with one of his most powerful novels yet...Ford has never written better...Canada is Richard Ford's best book since Independence Day, and despite its robbery and killings it too depends on its voice, a voice oddly calm and marked by the spare grandeur of its landscape."--Daily Beast

"[R]obust and powerful... tap[s] into something momentous and elemental about the profound moral chaos behind the actions of seemingly responsible people... By depicting tragedies without deep roots in reason or purpose, Mr. Ford has dramatized the frightening discovery of the world's anarchic heart."--Wall Street Journal

"Pure vocal grace, quiet humor, precise and calm observation."--The New Yorker

"A magnificent work of Montana gothic that confirms his position as one of the finest stylists and most humane storytellers in America...Ford has left the suburbs of New Jersey two thousand miles away and delivered his most elegiac and profound book."--Washington Post

"["Canada"]confirms his position as one of the finest stylists and most humane storytellers in America... his most elegiac and profound book..."--Washington Post

"Awe-inspiring... The laconic, grief-stricken voice of Dell, looking back on his past, trying to make some kind sense of what happened when his family imploded, keeps you turning pages, as do the quiet, thought-provoking revelations that Ford drops in throughout."--O, the Oprah Magazine

"Robust and powerful... Ford is able to tap into something momentous and elemental about the profound moral chaos behind the actions of seemingly responsible people... Ford has dramatized the frightening discovery of the world's anarchic heart."--Wall Street Journal

"Masterly... in Ford's American tragedy, filled with lost innocence and inevitable violence--a rusting carnival, a rabbit caught in a coyote's jaws--geography feels a lot like fate."--Vogue

"Marvelous..."Canada" is a masterpiece of a story with rich language and dialogue filled with suspense, bleakness, human frailties and flaws, and a little bit of hope seen through the eyes of an adolescent boy whose emotions seem often aligned with the desolate landscape of its setting."--The Oregonian (Portland)
