Críticas:

"A symphony of a novel. Sunil Yapa inhabits the skins of characters vastly different to himself: a riot cop in Seattle, a punk activist, a disillusioned world traveler and a high-level diplomat, among others. Through it all Yapa showcases a raw and rare talent. This is a protest novel which finds, at its core, a deep and abiding regard for the music of what happens. In the contemporary tradition of Aleksandar Hemon and Phillipp Meyer, with echoes of Michael Ondaatje and Arundhati Roy, Yapa strives forward with a literary molotov cocktail to light up the dark."

"Your Heart is a Muscle the Size of a Fist is an enthralling street-level vision of the 1999 WTO riots, a story visceral, horrifying, and often heroic. But above all, this book is a full-throated chorus of voices on all sides--protestors, cops, delegates, politicians, and ramblers--as democracy runs headlong into the machinery of global power. Sunil Yapa has achieved something special, a story that is as tragic as it is relevant, as unflinching as it is humane. Watch out."
"Smith Henderson, author of "Fourth of July Creek"

""Your Heart is a Muscle the Size of a Fist" is a glorious novel. An open-armed love letter to humanity, it is story of the two primal human emotions: love and fear. The language is brave and brash. The plot loops around a burning center encompassing the warmth of parents and the coolness of patriarchy. This is a novel that will compel you to look and then to witness. '"We are mad with hope'" the narrator says early on, and by the end the reader is too." "Tiphanie Yanique, author of "Land of Love and Drowning"""
