Reviews

"False Calm bears little relation to most travelogues . . . It's not exploration; it's portraiture."--NPR"An artful, atmospheric, thought-provoking depiction of life between silence and open space."--Los Angeles Review of Books"False Calm is fascinating, informative, and ultimately a pleasure to read."--World Literature Today"Style is perfectly suited to subject; Cristoff travels in a land where real meets surreal and curses, superstition, myth, and mysticism are woven into the fabric of everyday life."--Kirkus Reviews"Personal memoir, travelogue, and history combine in Mari a Sonia Cristoff's False Calm, a journey that peels back the layers of the ghostly fog blanketing Patagonia to reveal engrossing complexity."--Foreword Reviews"Cristoff writes with a razor-sharp voice, and her insight and ability to inhabit the voices of Patagonia--her success as a 'two-voiced narrator'--make this book a tremendous success."--Rain Taxi"Cristoff is far from being just another writer. She is, on the contrary, a magnificent example of a chronicler-essayist narrator: a unique species of those who are possibly on the way to extinction."--Alejandra Costamagna"Outstanding, fun, insightful."--Neue Z rcher Zeitung"A brilliant journalistic investigation."--Denis Scheck, ARD Tagesthemen"Captivating, intelligent, where the silent strength reaches beyond the real at hand."--Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung"A marvelous book with literary reportage, possibly one of the best books to come of the hundreds of new translations from Argentinean literature."--S ddeutsche Zeitung"Impressive literary quality. A profoundly disquieting image of the Argentinean Patagonia and beyond."--Monika Thees, Die Berliner Literaturkritik
