All My Goodbyes isa virtuoso performance. A love story told in razor sharp fragments, the novel lies at the intersection of memory, violence and trauma.”—Katie Kitamura

A young Argentinian woman feels her identity is in pieces. Diffident, self-critical, wary of commitment, she is condemned, or condemns herself, to repeated acts of departure, from places, parents, and lovers. Then, arriving in the southernmost region of Patagonia, she convinces herself she has found happiness, until she’s caught up in the horrific murders that haunt her story.

Mariana Dimópulos was born in Buenos Aires in 1973. A writer and a translator, she is the author of three novellas,Anís (2008),Cada despedida (2010) andPendiente (2013), as well as short stories and nonfiction, includingCarrusel Benjamin (2017), a critical study on the work of Walter Benjamin. She teaches at the University of Buenos Aires, and contributes to the cultural supplements of major Argentine newspapersClarín andPágina/12.

"A marvelously interior novel, unique in its perceptions, that traffics both in the joy of invention and the sorrow of memory."—Kirkus Reviews (Starred Review)

"A fascinating kaleidoscope of regret."—Publishers Weekly

"Remarkable . . . The destabilizing sequence of events illuminates Dimópulos’s commitment to portraying a new global citizenship characterized by interruption, dispersal, and disruption.”—BOMB

“Scientific in its distance and philosophical in its insight,All My Goodbyes is a marvelous, introspective work.”—Iowa Gazette

"[A] splintered novella about murders that haunt a girl in Patagonia. Dimópulos constructs time as fluid, making the narrative structure of the book fragmented."—World Literature Today

"Mariana Dimópulos's wonderfully strange and addictiveAll My Goodbyes is narrated by a woman driven to abandon everything the moment it becomes familiar. The scattered pieces of her story—each of them wonderfully distinct, laced with insight, violence, and sensuality—cohere into a profound evocation of restlessness, of the sublime and imprisoning act of letting go."—Julie Buntin, author ofMarlena

"How to describe the clear and mysterious force of Mariana Dimópulos’s writing: the brief intensity; the compassionate irony; the grand themes viewed through the lens of a microscope; the recognition and exceeding of past traditions. Above all, it is a writing gestated in unknown lands."—Esther Cross
