“Invaders. Real stories on extraterrestrials in Argentina” (Editorial Sudamericana, 2009).
Like every football fan with fantasies of his or her Dream Team, here we are, with the perfect line-up, the ultimate best eleven. Eleven stories that is, stories that catch our atention and at the same time, fascinate. To be read in one go, in 2 hours or 2 days, a page turning book that acts as an hallucinatory Pandora’s Box, from which surprise after surprise escapes to alien effect. Told with just the right mix of illusion and scepticism, with a lot of respect, with a lot of rhythm, and a lot of irony, this is a book that leaves the reader wanting to know more, to discover the human and the not so human characters behind the stories, to keep reading. And I know of no better praise for any book than to say that it makes the reader want to keep on reading.
