"....Assault on Paradise can be considered a critique of colonialism and its cruelties, it is not only that. For in her portrayal of its feckless hero, Lobo moves her novel well beyond polemic and into the realm of art."
—The New York Times Book Review
"Lobo...delineates Pedro's 'education' with scorching irony and brings her crowded story to a stunning, chilling conclusion."
—Kirkus Reviews— -
"Discriminating readers, especially those familiar with the work of Eduardo Galeano, will welcome this new voice in Latin American literature."
