"[Rafael] Reig delights in keeping his readers on their toes. For such a brief book — it can be read in one afternoon — it covers a lot of ground, and all of the elements come together at the end. Reig is playing around in A Pretty Face — and inviting his readers to play along."—NPR.org
“A wonderfully absurd little existential novel.”—The Independent on Sunday
“Rafael Reig’s manic inventiveness appears to know no bounds. . . . Enjoy the humour and intellectual breadth.”—The Times (London)
Children’s author Lola Eguibar is dead. With the help of her teenage character Benito, she sets out to investigate her own murder. Set in a surreal Spain that is part of the United States, where everyone speaks Anglo and the world has exhausted its supply of oil, this is a remarkable blend of crime, science fiction, and satire.
Rafael Reig was born in 1963. He lives in Madrid, where he combines university teaching with his writing activities.
About the Author: Born in Asturias in 1963, Rafael Reig studied Philosophy and Humanities in Madrid and later in New York, where he wrote his PhD thesis on 19th-century literary depictions of the prostitute. Today Reig combines university teaching with his writing and editing activities. Blood on the Saddle is the first of his novels to be translated into English.
