Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Book of Embraces This is a difficult book to categorize. It is fiction, autobiography, short story, poetry, history, fantasy and political commentary. It moved me to laughter, tears, wonder, anger, and joy. It is a book which is best digested in small doses, easily done as it is a series of vignettes, all less than two pages long. I have read the book multiple times, and always found some gem I had missed before. This has become my favorite book to give as a gift.

Editorial Reviews

“[Galeano] is a dangerous radical storyteller, like Gabriel Garcia Marquez, like Isabel Allende, and like Pablo Neruda before them. . . . is a mosaic, or Deigo Rivera mural in words.” — John Leonard (New York Newsday)

“In , Galeano goes out on the tightrope and then levitates in the air above it. . . . [His] subject is nothing less that the variety of human life and love.” — Alan Ryan (Washington Post Book World)
