One of the most powerful, intense and original contemporary authors writing in Spanish.
Sublime Arriaga. The Untameable consecrates its author as the best contemporary Mexican writer and as an indisputable figure among the writers in the world.
An absolutely unique author. A pounding novel.
The Untameable is one of the best books I have read.
The Untameable is showing us once again the mastery of Arriaga as a weaver of parallel stories that converge in the end. It's his personal imprint.
An exuberant celebration of the wildness in both man and nature, this is simultaneously cinematic, literary and compelling, dragging the reader along into a world of corruption and beauty like no other. A genuine event book.
Epic . . . A magnificent beast of a book.
An epic tale . . . The screenwriter of such awe-inspiring films as Amores Perros, 21 Grams and Babel is a genius at making connections between far-flung people and events.
A fast-moving, intriguing and virile novel. Jack London would recognise a call from the wild.
