“Anna Carreras’ novels have a very strong vital component, they are built with her own being. (…) The literary device is powerful, but the background story between Blanca and Anju is even much more, a big love story narrated with a waving style and with continuous invocations to art. The book demands that the reader a surrender. Accepting her laws, understanding her characters, let yourself be seduced by Blanca.” –Julià Guillamón, La Vanguardia (with regards to Encén el llum).
