What the critics have said:

“Her captivating use of words to capture all types of violence that plague the world, especially those against women, has made her one of the 25 most promising writers under 35 years of age in Spanish literature according to the ‘Granta’ list.” El País

“It doesn’t matter whether Mónica Ojeda writes poetry, novels or short stories. The Ecuadorian author, who has been living in Madrid for a long time, breaks the seams of all the genres she touches.” ABC
