‘From the first page, a seductive universe comes into view. It’s similar to love at first sight, and there’s no need for hesitation, just for the most innocent surrender.’

‘Good novels find their protagonist’s voice and make the reader feel close to them. Such is the case of Oldladyvoice. […] The magic of Oldladyvoice also lies in its supporting characters (the grandmother, mother and mother’s boyfriend) and the conversations they have with Marina, which can make you smile and break your heart in the same line.’

‘Marina is firing the last bullets of her childhood, and she does it in a clean, powerful shot of poetry, hope, and zest for life.’
