Ty Hardy Book Riot“Put strangers around a common table and you have possibilities in life and in literature Thus the driving premise of The Magic Mountain and thus Argentine novelist Gorodischer’s slender book Gorodischer writes a poetic vigorous prose Her story dreamlike and start and stop takes effort for though brief it is dense and well worth the trouble” Kirkus ReviewsBecause of Prodigies' unusual style it reuires great care and thoughtfulness to read It cannot be rushed through or casually scanned An impatient reader will abandon this book long before its rich rewards can be reaped The right audience will have a willingness to savor to double back over sentences to bob along to wherever the author and characters wish to take you If you are ready for the experience of Prodigies it is definitely ready for you Carmen Maria Machado NPRGorodischer's rhythmic and transparent prose reveals the violence underlying bourgeois respectability Prodig.

Gorodischer apparently considers this her best book and it is a beautiful one but in my opinion not her best novel to appear in English That glory goes to Trafalgar I fell into her work originally via Ursula LeGuin's translation of Kalpa Imperial The Greatest Empire That Never Was and was stunned This was uite possibly the best book of science fiction I had read since a book by LeGuin herself But she upped her game even with Trafalgar which is laugh out loud funny and written in such an ingenious way that it reminds me of Invisible Cities Anyhow back to Prodigies which is truly a great book It feels like you are reading the thoughts of the inhabitants of the house from the point of view of the house If that makes any sense It's simply beautiful Dense and difficult but worth the time and energy
