During the presentation of the novel in Andrés Bello Hall in the heart of Madrid, intellectual Clara Caballero speaking on behalf of CIDALIA Consulting, stated that the novel defines Marta Rojas as a leader of a new school of the Latin American novel, the “Benito Pérez Galdós” of Cuba, whose non-linear structure takes on a similar style to that of Galdós.

Participants also highlighted the revival of the figure of the cigar factory reader, declared cultural heritage of the nation due to the importance of this tradition in Cuban culture.
