Description: 'Haunting and beautifully written... The author's preoccupations are reminiscent of his fellow Argentinians Borges and Cortazar but his vision is fresh and unique. I can't understand why, with the interest in things Latin American, we have had to wait so long for a book of his to appear in English? Independent on Sunday ?Mr. Saer's novel combines elements of the haunting metaphysical ambiguity of Jorge Luis Borges? poetry and Graham Greene's sensual description of the dark corners of the physical world and the human soul. The evocative imagery and ideas revealed in The Witness are not easily forgotten? Washington Times 'Let me make myself clear: The Witness is a great book and the name of its author, Juan Jos? Saer, must be added to the list of the best South American writers...' Le Monde ?There is no magical realism, no baroque exoticism and not a particle of sentimentality that sometimes colours Latin American fiction, but instead an intensity of poetic description and meditation...Saer's luminous prose imparts awesome meaning to the word ?discover? Times Educational Supplement ?Shades of Melville and Conrad? s Heart of Darkness influence an urgent narrative which unfolds through prose which has the terseness of reportage.' The Irish Times
