“This novel’s deep theme is a peculiar kind of heroism—that of claiming, in a world stripped to necessity, a human remainder of grace: the choice to bear witness to ideals that are more precious than survival and that exist only in our affirmation of them. Out in the Open is a harrowing, humane, and very beautiful book.” — Garth Greenwell, author of What Belongs to You 

“An astounding and suspenseful read that feels both like ancient parable and ominous warning. Carrasco is a master stylist, and the ‘boy’ of this novel is the perfect hero. Your heart beats next to his on page after remarkable page.” —Ariel Djanikian, author of The Office of Mercy

“Undeniably impressive and compelling.” —The Scotsman

“[A] tale told with savage precision, and filled with memorable passages.” —The Times Literary Supplement

“The writing is austere with flourishes of great beauty from an exceptional translator.” —The Independent (UK)
