Daniel Magariel presents One of the Boys
(A Greenlight First Editions Club selection)
In conversation with Alexandra Schwartz
Daniel Magariel’s riveting and emotionally harrowing debut novel about two young brothers and their physically and psychologically abusive father is already being acclaimed as the arrival of a major new talent. 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 stunning prose and chilling clarity a young boy’s struggle to hold onto the dangerous pieces of his shattered family. Magariel discusses his work with New Yorker staff writer Alexandra Schwartz.
