The New York Times Praises Sudden Death by Alvaro Enrigue

In a stunning review in the New York Times51mew0IOfFL._SX307_BO1,204,203,200_, Larry Rohter calls Alvaro Enrigue’s newly published novel SUDDEN DEATH “droll and erudite” with “both great entertainment value and intellectual appeal.”  The review conveys the wild range of global history explored in this novel, from tennis courts in 17th Rome to Nazi sympathizers in France, and praises its “mischievous and picaresque” tone and its potent resonance for readers today.  SUDDEN DEATH is Enrigue’s fifth novel, and his first translated into English.

Rohter writes “SUDDEN DEATH is a splendid introduction to Mr. Enrigue’s varied body of work, but it also raises a question related to the themes of the novel: Why are English-language readers only now getting a glimpse of what this gifted writer has produced in a career that is already two decades old?”  Something we’re working to remedy.
