By Aminatta Forna

Pronto, los angeles relación que Duro entabla con los ingleses y las obras de reparación que él mismo emprende en l. a. casa azul abrirán las compuertas del pasado, y por ellas entrarán en tromba los días de l. a. infancia, el primer amor, las primeras traiciones y también los angeles guerra y l. a. muerte que llegaron luego, y de las que ya nadie habla.

«Oscura y perturbadora, los angeles narrativa de Forna tiene un ritmo de gran belleza, un tono escalofriante y angustioso, verdaderamente apasionante.»
Kirkus (lectura seleccionada)

«Una novela magistral por una autora de talento... Forna despliega su historia con un ritmo de medido suspense que se lee como un thriller cocinado a fuego lento. Su prosa nos agarra por el pescuezo de manera sigilosa y a continuación aprieta con fuerza. Narrativa de máxima tensión.»
Arifa Akbar, The Independent

«Esta hipnótica novela examina los angeles resaca de l. a. guerra y el genocidio. Lo más interesante de esta historia es el retrato de cómo aquellos que sobreviven a las atrocidades deben aprender a continuar viviendo juntos. Altamente recomendable.»
Evelyn Beck, Library Journal

Jackie Annesley, London night Standard

«Una historia desgarradora sobre cómo aprendemos a vivir con nuestros enemigos, aquellos que nos han causado los daños más devastadores.»
Manasi Subramaniam, The Sunday Guardian
