"He is neither avant-garde nor marginalized, neither quirk nor any other lazy or easy label. Rubén Martín Giráldez is simply a highly original writer, and his Masterful (entertaining, sadistic, and verbose) demands interpretive insolence. A lure that all audacious readers should get hooked on."

- Gonzalo Torné
