Praise

Most Anticipated Book of the Year from Vulture, Seattle Times, and Electric Literature

“A new heir to the magical-realism throne.”
Seattle Times

“A bilingual, mythological, and original debut about resistance and survival.”
Vulture

“A haunting (and haunted) debut, The Volcano Daughters is a dark marvel of a book, at once lush and stark, mythic and earthy. Balibrera’s fusion of history and legend, puts me in mind of a young Isabel Allende.”
Peter Ho Davies, author of A Lie Someone Told You About Yourself

“My mind and heart were blown open by Gina Maria Balibrera’s astonishing debut. The Volcano Daughters is a work of fierce ambition and blazing emotion, narrated by an unforgettable chorus of ghosts who trace the story of their friends, sisters Graciela and Consuelo, through a journey that spans continents and generations. As the chorus says: ‘The word makes the world,’ and with this novel, her first, Balibrera has done nothing less. Her invocation of the voices of a group of women whose lives were distorted and cut short by El Salvador’s violent dictator El Gran Pendejo left me breathless—and is one of the most powerful stories of motherhood, sisterhood, and survival I’ve ever read. A colossal achievement.”
Julie Buntin, author of Marlena
