"The literature of Gonçalo M. Tavares is radical, and does not allow us to remain indifferent. On the contrary, it makes us uncomfortable and hurt. Tavares is a master of the art of shocking the reader." (José Castello - Ipsilon)
"Gonçalo M. Tavares burst onto the Portuguese literary scene armed with an utterly original imagination that broke through all the traditional imaginative boundaries... I´ve predicted that in thirty years´time, if not before, he will win the Nobel Prize." (José Saramago)
