Carolina De Robertis recommends
Deep as the Sky, Red as the Sea (2023)
Rita Chang-Eppig
"Deep as the Sky, Red as the Sea is a gripping, powerful portrait of a woman on the high seas who is as ferocious as she is human, determined to survive. Brimming with adventure and intrigue, passion and prophecy, fierce battles and moving moments of grace, this novel captures us on a pirate ship and does not let go until long after we've turned the radiant final page."
The Queens of Sarmiento Park (2022)
Camila Sosa Villada
"The Queens of Sarmiento Park blew Argentina's collective mind with its exquisite power, tenderness, and riotous imagination."
Infinite Country (2021)
Patricia Engel
"Everything Patricia Engel writes is lit up from the inside with beauty and power. Her prose is gorgeous and her characters are always achingly alive."
