“Hard to put down”: A Review

A family drama tinted with magical realism in the style of Gabriel García Márquez, permeated by an overwhelming sense of dread and despair, à la Edgar Allan Poe. Yet, author Laura Gentile finds her own voice in an intriguing and unique story. Challenging and at times hard to read, but also hard to put down. -R. on Goodreads

“Why do you reduce art to an autobiography? Once a piece of art is concluded and ejected into the world it changes with every single pair of eyes and becomes an endless object of transformation. The spectator makes it his or her own. Don’t decontextualize it and call it truth, call it your perspective.”
― Laura Gentile, Within Paravent Walls
