America in Absentia is a reflective text which is immediately captivating and draws the reader into its poetic web of allusion. He vividly illustrates the role postmodernism and our moral self-conception play within globalised economies. --Shibboleths: A Journal of Comparative Theory and Criticism
If you liked Jean Baudrillard's America (1988) - you'll love Ruiz's America in Absentia (2008). -- @OrlandoCurrents
"America is the highest bidder in this speculative game. Let us hope she is bluffing."
