Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0520203887, Paperback)Alicia Kozameh spent more than three years as an Argentinian political prisoner during the 1970s. Now she has transposed her experience into fiction, narrating the ordeal of a prisoner named Sara by means of letters, court transcripts, and vignettes. Steps Under Water has been capably translated by David Davis. And despite a slight slackening toward the end of Sara's story, the author conveys the anguish of her confinement with undeniable power.

"Translation of Pasos bajo el agua, with brief introductory notes (dated 1987 and 1996) by author and foreword by Sosnowski, who describes the military dictatorship under which Kozameh lived and was imprisoned. A powerful, moving book in both languages; however, bilingual readers no doubt will miss Kozameh's drawings done during her imprisonment, and may regret the alterations to the original intended to make the book more attractive and accessible to readers in English"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58.
