Two breeders: The last glories

Reviews

“In his stories there are people who love each other, people who hate each other, unexpected episodes, sense of humor, passion. All the ingredients of the best narrative, in a fluid and smooth language, which produces pleasure.”

Silvina Ocampo

“In this strange symmetry, where chance is always rigorous and destiny is always unpredictable, the disagreement has, curiously, its rigid laws and characters move and trace the mysterious drawing of unreality. In the plot of the irreversible, reality does not exist, has not existed, will not exist”.

Isidoro Blaisten


“Our country, so often devastated by fanaticisms of one or another sign, especially needs complex looks that assume all reality in its contradictions, beyond the comfortable map of good and bad. Zavaleta does very well what artists should and know how to do: put themselves in the place of others”.

María Rosa Lojo

“It happens that the writing of this young writer, smooth, elegant, colloquial, not only makes the reading easy, it also turns it more attractive. And with both ingredients: interest in the arguments and writing, distributed or managed with similar intensity. Who can decline to read Torres Zavaleta?”

María Esther de Miguel

“A refined precise prose, loaded with secret poetry that eludes sentimentality, and detailed observation of very recognizable characters and circumstances, without incurring the picturesque. They are the beginning of the maturity of someone who knows how to narrate with style, with passion, with refined humor”.

Ernesto Schóo
