The young Fonseca, who is someone who creates fictions about archives, masks and ruins, that is to say, someone who knows how to create other ways of thinking, and who is also usually a brilliant and obstinate explorer of abysses, has become one of my favourite writers.
He makes his own the voice of the great metaphysicians of postmodern fiction. His Delphic, conspiratorial aura recalls the paranoid brilliance of Don DeLillo, the cosmopolitan dread of Roberto Bolaño and the imaginative elasticity of Ricardo Piglia.
Fonseca conceives of fiction writing as a Borgesian garden of forking paths
The writing is meticulous, precise, nuanced when necessary, always attentive to the novel's changes of pace
A brilliant enquiry into the archive of memory
