Praise for Chiquitita
❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ A unique literary project
This novel gives voice to all children who have been compelled to flee, forming yet another intricate facet within a unique literary undertaking – evocative of the shifting patterns seen through a kaleidoscope, says Gro Jørstad Nilsen, Bergens Tidende
Pedro Carmona-Alvarez presents a harrowing and linguistically powerful exploration of the escape from Chile’s military dictatorship. Through his meticulous and inventive use of language, Carmona-Alvarez has crafted a profoundly thought-provoking piece of literary art, deepening the reader’s comprehension of the enduring impact of displacement on the human psyche, says Leif Bull, Dagens Næringsliv
In an intimate manner, Carmona-Alvarez delves into the question of time, exploring how the perception of time can shift when faced with challenging or even extreme circumstances (…) Chiquitita stands apart from anything else, radiating brilliance and beauty in its intimacy and sagacity, yet also imbued with an unsettling aspect, says Leif Ekle, NRK.
