Sobre este título:
"Divisadero is powered by narrative force and contains finely
chiseled characters. [It] is also a book profuse with poetic imagery,
profound themes and the delicate architecture of open verse . . . Stunning
bits of lyrical observation turn up on almost every page . . .
-- John Barron, Chicago Sun-Times
"Hauntingly beautiful . . . What an unusual, and unusually rich,
experience it is to read Divisadero, the new novel by Michael Ondaatje . .
. Ondaatje expertly shift[s] into different voices and tenses, disrupting
the conventional chronology with the easy grace that has become his
hallmark . . . There are countless examples of perfect phrasing in
Divisadero, and those who spend time within its pages will discover even
more proof--not that they needed it--of Michael Ondaatje's peerlessness as
a storyteller and poet. -- Jeff Turrentine, Washington Post Book World
"Magnificent . . . Ondaatje pulls off the plotlines masterfully .
. . He introduces memorable characters [and] scenes of majestic texture and
captivating imagery . . . From its first to last telling sentence, this
aesthetic tale, poetic with human detail, is a rare and precious
pleasure." -- Don Oldenburg, USA Today
"One can consider Divisadero a novelistic evocation of Buddhist
ideas . . . In ways too myriad to enumerate, the luminous last hundred
pages complement and refract what came before." -- Art Winslow, Chicago Tribune
'Hauntingly beautiful . . . What an unusual, and unusually rich,
experience it is to read Divisadero' -- Washington Post Book World
