Original Title: Petia camino al reino de los cielos

This is a particularly impressive story about the ways in which people put up with a long tyranny without getting discouraged. Its simple, spontaneous language is exceptionally well suited to this portrayal of the impenetrable, inscrutable, dark and oppressive world of Stalinism.

Praises

«An intelligent, sweeping novel in the style of the great European writers, it is tender, cruel and closer to Dostoyevsky than to Tolstoy».
El Mundo

«This book perfectly captures a world where routine terror and silence is the people’s daily fare».
El Faro de Cartagena
