Review quote

"The most beautiful novel published in Spain since the Civil War." --Gabriel García Márquez "Mercè Rodoreda is the writer I cannot stop talking about." --Alberto Ríos "[I] read [The Time of the Doves] cover to cover all in one afternoon. When I was finished, I felt as foolish as Balboa discovering the powerful Pacific." --Sandra Cisneros, from her Foreword to Camilla Street
