What the Critics Say

"Each of the five stories in Varadero y otros cuentos cubanos (includng the prize-winning title piece) is refreshing, with disclosures and discoveries about the characters and the human experience that not only surprise but at times jolt the listener out of complacency. Author Rivera reads his own work, providing a consistent and well-paced narration. Highly ecommended." (Library Journal)
"Con una prosa envolvente, Frank Rivera desarrolla historias que a veces parecen sueños o recuerdos fragmentados, con cierta añoranza del cine y la novela negra norteamericana. Este escritor conoce a fondo su oficio." (VIDA Literaria)
"Rivera se inscribe en la rica tradición de narradores desde Edgar Allan Poe hasta Horacio Quiroga, que no sólo han elevado el cuento a su máxima expresión, sino que han indagado en el misterio mismo de la creación, de acuerdo con el escitor Jorge Ignacio Covarrubias." (El Nuevo Día, San Juan, Puerto Rico)
