Romina Garber’s Argentine folklore-inspired fantasy, LOBIZONA, has two starred reviews!
“Garber uses her own experience as an Argentine immigrant, as well as classic literature that Manu enjoys, to add richness and authenticity to the story and prose. Dialogue is related in Spanish—immediately translated into English via italics—which brings Manu and the other characters to vivid life and makes them, and the lore, absolutely memorable.”
—Booklist, starred review
“In a timely work of magical realism featuring references to Borges and Garcia Márquez, Garber tackles issues of nationalism, identity, and belonging . . . This layered novel blends languages and cultures to create a narrative that celebrates perseverance.”
