"Rivas is, without doubt, the most important figure (and the best known) in contemporary Galician literature […]. His fictions bear the tone of an oral tale."—Alberto Manguel
"Manuel Rivas is an important storyteller because he is sensitive and has an incredible ear, which, in his fiction, is allied to great integrity."—John Berger
"Rivas is an indisputable classic" —The Scotsman
"An author who knows how to introduce poetry, not only in his phrasing, but also in his way of seeing the world." — Raphaëlle Rérolle, Le Monde
