Review quote

"The love story, the black humour, the sinister thriller element, the evocation of the fantastic beauty of Barcelona and the vivid, tragic-comic characters we encounter - all of these balls are kept whirling until they land softly at the end. The writing is always sharp and economical... moving and eloquent" Norman Schwenk.
