Carolina De Robertis recommends
Here in Berlin (2017)
"A brilliant novel, by turns hilarious and haunting, gorgeous and brutal, entertaining and profound. Cristina García masterfully weaves an intricate web of history and passion, finely tuned to the subtle music of the soul. Here in Berlin demonstrates exactly why García has so long been an international treasure, one who never ceases to astonish."
Elsey Come Home (2019)
"Elsey Come Home is a delicious read, vivid and delicately wrought, and so very prescient with regard to the mother-child bond that it’s almost eerie. I kept finding myself thinking, how did she know? and how did she find the words? An engrossing, moving meditation on family, loss, creativity, secrets, culture, and the bonds that hold our lives together against the odds."
My Mother's House (2020)
"Momplaisir is a bold and powerful new voice, and My Mother's House is poised to blow the roof off."
