" . . [W]hat we encounter in Loquela is a skillful unmaking--complete with diary excerpts, missives from beyond the grave and an invented barn-burning manifesto on a literary movement, 'Corporalism, ' which seeks to breathe life into the 'corpse' of literature--that manages to offer new ways of thinking about what the novel can do."--Laird Hunt, L.A. Times "[Loquela] is drenched in the spirit of experimentality, dry and absurd humor, strangeness and intrigue."--Simone Wolff, Bookslut "Begins to ****** with your head from its very first word."--Toby Litt "Navidad & Matanza could be the hallucinogenic amalgamation of a Cï¿½sar Aira plot with setting and characters conceived by Bolaï¿½o if written using Oulipo-style constraints. . . . With ample imagination and commanding style, Navidad & Matanza certainly marks Labbï¿½ as a young author from whom we ought to anticipate great, fascinating things to come."--Jeremy Garber, Powell's Books "Labbï¿½ deliberately distorts conventional narrative forms to create a challenging but engaging text."--New York Journal of Books "Not for the casual reader, the book reveals its meaning in tiny shock waves that dissipate almost as quickly as they appear, an effect that will appeal to the right reader."--Publishers Weekly
