“THE FUTURE OF FICTION”: John Freeman featured Galera’s work in an issue of Freeman’s dedicated to the authors who represent the future of writing. Galera is regarded as one of the finest contemporary South American writers, and he’s published by a veritable who’s who of prestigious international literary houses.
GALERA’S BREAKTHROUGH NOVEL: This is Galera’s most exceptional work to-date. While Blood-Drenched Beard earned him phenomenal reviews, The Shape of Bones should grow his audience and reputation exponentially in our country.
PART DENIS JOHNSON, PART ROBERTO BOLANO: Blood-Drenched Beard earned Galera comparisons from American critics to these two literary giants. The Shape of Bones bears the verbal brilliance, artful violence, and wry intelligence that defines Johnson’s early work.
STELLAR PRAISE: We have great praise for this book from David Mitchell, Laura van der Berg, Susanna Moore, Publishers Weekly, and a number of our country’s most respected booksellers.
“The Shape of Bones is a work of art about the fragility of things, the ever-presence of the past and the hidden currents that push us this way and that. A book of visceral and tender beauty whose echoes persist long after the final page. Alison Entrekin’s impressive translation reads as if Galera had written in English.” —David Mitchell
“The Shape of Bones is a tense, atmospheric meditation on the hypnotic pull of the past, cast in ferociously intelligent prose. Daniel Galera is a thrilling writer, and this novel is nothing short of essential.” —Laura van den Berg
“In The Shape of Bones, Daniel Galera understands that violence is mysteriously capable of restoring a person to reality and preparing him to meet his moment of grace. His characters bear life’s inevitable weight of guilt and shame, all the while striving to resolve the fearful events of the past.” —Susanna Moore
