From reviews of The Book of Embraces

“[Galeano] is a dangerous radical storyteller, like Gabriel Garcia Marquez, like Isabel Allende, and like Pablo Neruda before them…. The Book of Embraces is a mosaic, or a Diego Rivera mural in words.” ― John Leonard, New York Newsday

“In The Book of Embraces, Galeano goes out on the tightrope and then levitates in the air above it…. [His] subject is nothing less that the variety of human life and love.” ― Alan Ryan, Washington Post Book World
