—Ariel Dorfman, author of Death and the Maiden
"Using brilliant language, Ramírez interweaves myth and reality to enrich the plot of this fascinating novel."
—Claribel Alegría, author of Sorrow, and co-author of Death of Somoza
"A total novel about the secret mysteries of science, of poetry, and of dictatorships. the beauties of Rubén Darío and the horrors of Somoza intertwine in an unforgettable and absorbing story."
