"Luisa Valenzuela is the heiress of Latin American fiction. She wears an opulent, baroque crown, but her feet are naked."

Carlos Fuentes, author, Aura, The Old Gringo

"Luisa Valenzuela's books are our present, but they also contain much of our future."

Julio Cortazar, author, Hopscotch

"Before Kathy Acker, before Patti Smith, before Angela Carter, there was & still is Luisa Valenzuela. Deathcats is a prescient fever dream against the new millennium, a take no prisoners satire, a sardonic after midnight liturgy."

Richard Nash, former publishing editor, Soft Skull

"Valenzuela's work is not precious. Jonathan Tittler's translation is syntactically beautiful and las palabras se contruyen para devestar...."

Amy Temple Harper, author of Cramped Uptown
