Críticas

«En lugar seguro es una obra maestra de intimismo que no por eso se priva de resonancias universales (...) Una verdadera y honesta y plena y pura love tale que se ocupa de l. a. búsqueda del amor y del hallazgo de l. a. amistad así como de los angeles sutil metamorfosis que toda relación va sufriendo y gozando más con el caminar que con el correr de los años...» Rodrigo Fresán (Qué Leer)

«La prosa de Stegner brega por extraerle a cada palabra toda l. a. sinceridad de los angeles que es capaz, es contemplativa y serena como un paisaje de Sisley, rechaz sentimentalismos y grandilocuencias con un fabric tan fácilmente inflamable con cursilerías. El único lugar seguro es que no hay lugar seguro, pero en su búsqueda auténtica crecemos y hallamos consuelo eterno.» Antonio Lozano (Go Mag)

«Una novela inteligente y conmovedora.» (El País Semanal)
