Praise

“Cleyvis Natera has written a powerful and arresting novel with unforgettable characters. Neruda on the Park is the book we need and the reason I read.”—Angie Cruz, author of Dominicana

“Cleyvis Natera is a writer to watch. Her excellent debut novel is lyrical, absorbing, and slyly funny.”—Jenny Offill, New York Times bestselling author of Weather
 
“Armed with wit and a warm sense of humor, Cleyvis Natera deftly scales questions as huge as the luxury building that looms over her characters’ lives. But pulsing at the heart of Neruda on the Park is a story more intimate, tender, and timeless—about a mother, her daughter, and what secrets slip through the cracks in their bond….A beautifully observed and propulsive debut.”—Dawnie Walton, author of The Final Revival of Opal & Nev
 
Neruda on the Park is a wondrous debut. There’s so much to love: the propulsive story, the indelible characters—I can’t remember any more memorable, more richly drawn, than Luz and Eusebia—the vivid portrait of the lives of Dominican immigrants. Cleyvis Natera’s novel, which artfully, imaginatively, convincingly explores home and the lengths one goes to protect it, love and womanhood, class and the promise of the American dream, is a compelling, crucial work of fiction.”—Mitchell S. Jackson, Pulitzer Prize–winning author of Survival Math
 
Neruda on the Park is a lush, beautifully layered look at class, culture, and change. Natera’s prose is intricate, tender, and perfectly calibrated—the Guerrero family will stay with me forever. This is a tremendous debut novel from a profoundly gifted writer.”—Kimberly King Parsons, National Book Award longlisted author of Black Light
 
Neruda on the Park is unlike anything I’ve ever read before. This is the unforgettable story of a family and community under threat, and a mother and daughter just beginning to truly see each other. It is as poignant and perceptive as it is sexy and thrilling, the rare book that manages to be chilling and fun and profound all at once….A remarkable feat of imagination from a wholly original writer.” —Naima Coster, New York Times bestselling author of What’s Mine and Yours
