US Kirkus Review » History is a nightmare that's more enjoyable than most pleasant dreams in this truculent surrealistic farrago from the Spanish postmodernist author of such cryptic fictions as Count Julian (1974) and Quarantine (1994). The subject here is "the long-winded author of Capital" and his long-suffering family, reimagined into such situations as a TV serial translating their struggles into cheesy melodrama, Marx's conversation with the (highly indignant) biblical patriarch Abraham, and damning testimony on the failure of his ideals from "the survivors and victims of real socialism." By turns playful, vitriolic, hilarious and numbingly redundant, this is, oddly enough, one of Goytisolo's least labyrinthine and most entertaining books. (Kirkus Reviews)
