Critics about

“Inspired prose, on the knife edge between despair, helplessness and laughter à la Eugene Ionesco. Prose of great talent, which, I think, could do with a greater spirit of protest at every level.” 


“Lavinia Braniste is a writer with an affinity for banal situations, but which become spectacular because they verge on the absurd. And when we say ‘spectacular,’ we’re not referring to an aesthetic relationship to the text, but to that mixture of expressiveness and attention to detail and visuals that a story needs if it is to aspire to the status of literature.”
