NEW WRITER ALERT. Daniel Magariel will be at our Phoenix store on Monday, August 28 with his slender new novel, ONE OF THE BOYS, which George Saunders calls «Brilliant, urgent, darkly funny, heartbreaking—a tour de force.»

Magariel will read excerpts and sign his debut, a New York Times Book Review Editors' Choice, about two young brothers contending with the love they have for their abusive father.

The three of them—a twelve-year-old boy, his older brother, their father—have won «the war,» the father's term for his bitter divorce and custody battle. They leave their Kansas home and drive through the night to Albuquerque, eager to begin again, united by the thrilling possibility of carving out a new life together. The boys go to school, join basketball teams, make friends. Meanwhile their father works from home, smoking cheap cigars to hide another smell. But soon the little missteps—the dead-eyed absentmindedness, the late night noises, the comings and goings of increasingly odd characters—become worrisome, and the boys find themselves watching their father change, grow erratic, then dangerous.

Set in the sublimely stark landscape of suburban New Mexico and a cramped apartment shut tight to the world, One of the Boys conveys with propulsive prose and extraordinary compassion a young boy's struggle to hold onto the pieces of his shattered family. Tender, moving and beautiful, Daniel Magariel's masterful debut is a story of resilience and survival: two foxhole-weary brothers banding together to protect each other from the father they once trusted, but no longer recognize. With the emotional core of A LITTLE LIFE and the speed of WE THE ANIMALS, ONE OF THE BOYS is among the most remarkable debut novels you'll ever read.



**PLEASE NOTE** Daniel will also lead a writing workshop earlier in the day from 5:30 to 6:30pm. Purchase a copy of ONE OF THE BOYS for admittance to the workshop.
