"In reacquainting us with the forces which inhabit us, which mysteriously cause us to kill or love or suffer, Busqued estranges us from our cliche expectations about what true crime literature should do... The great artist does this not by staging simplistic political positions or moral answers, but by turning the world back into a wondrous question. Some might argue that this is a way of undermining the notion of simple truth, but truth is never simple. I’d argue that Busqued is reverential towards truth, the way a mystic struggles in awe to understand God as something both intimate and ineffable. The mystic experiences the power of the deity within that tension. MAGNETIZED lives within a similar tension, slowly spiraling around certainty, watching it recede the closer we get."
