Praise for Jose Donoso's

The Obscene Bird of Night

"Donoso, as I have long believed, belongs to that small company of storytellers who write not for a region but for the entire world ... a gigantic masterpiece." —Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.

"A book that is itself both Miracle and Monster, like the best of this century's fiction... deserves to take its place alongside the major works of Asturias and Fuentes... Borges... Garcia Marquez." —Robert Coover

"Sinister, luxuriant, brilliant... with this book Donoso becomes a world novelist." —Walter Clemons

"I think he's a sorcerer." — Vance Bourjaily

"One of the great novels not only of Spanish America but of our time." —Carlos Fuentes

Translated from the Spanish by Andree Conrad
