"Now in his late 60s, Goytisolo remains a marginal man, at least in America, because of his nervy depictions of homosexuality, elliptical Modernism, his mordant sense of history, and an unfashionable multiculturalism -- he knows and admires Islamic traditions. A self-exile from Franco's Spain, Goytisolo proffers a ferocious critique of power as oppression: his dialectical standoffs between West and East, European and Arab temperaments, waver between positing irreconcilable differences, the result of centuries of injustice and misunderstanding, and tantalizing intimations of cultural synthesis." - Bill Marx, Boston Globe (29 April 1999) "The foremost novelist of contemporary Spain" - Carlos Fuentes.
