“This evocative and moving debut… is a fascinating and intricately woven examination of family, political unrest, and the power of memory in shaping who we are.”SIGNATURE READS

“A beautifully written story of the love between a mother and son in Buenos Aires, which has been taken over by Argentina’s military dictatorship… It’s a stunning debut about family, violence, and consequences.”HELLO GIGGLES

“[A] heartbreaking and moving reverie. It’s been said that memoryis a poet—if so, this novel represents some of its most gorgeous and incandescent work.”—KIRKUS, *STARRED* REVIEW

“[An] evocative debut … [Lopez] delivers a delicately textured, discomfiting first novel, a fitting tribute to mark 40 years of courageous, peaceful marches conducted by mothers of the disappeared in Buenos Aires.” —BOOKLIST

“[An] enticing debut novel… This is a detailed, moving meditation on a mother’s imperfect love… Though delicately written, it’s compulsive in its quest, never trying to neaten the messiness of grief.” —PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

“Meditative… sensual, recursive… for readers who especially appreciate when a writer can—in the medium of long and beautiful sentences—reveal to them the idiosyncrasies of their own minds.” —THE ARKANSAS INTERNATIONAL
