Reviews

"A choral, savage, and ruthless work, considered to be the great Argentine social novel." Europa Press "Like Twin Peaks reimagined by Roberto Bolano, Gesell Dome is a teeming microcosm in which voices combine into a rich, engrossing symphony of human depravity." Publishers Weekly "Cynical and funny: a yarn worthy of a place alongside Cortazar and Donoso." Kirkus Reviews "If you enjoy lyrical depictions of iniquity and a sprinkling of philosophy mixed in with your noir fiction, then you'll like Gesell Dome." SFGate "By using a narrator who is not shocked, who does not look away from anything, Saccomanno shines a gruesome, graphic light on what people are willing to ignore so that their comfort remains intact." Kim Fay, Los Angeles Review of Books "Newspaper articles, ads, and more traditionally narrated segments make up the book, sprawling along without chapter breaks. The effect is like being tied to a stake on Main Street while the personifications of sin parade by, occasionally smacking you as they go." Eric Shonkwiler, The Coil
