Ways of Going Home – Alejandro Zambra



Translated by Megan McDowell

A young boy plays hide and seek in the suburbs of Santiago, unaware that his neighbours are becoming entangled in the brutality of Pinochet’s regime. Then one night a mysterious girl appears in his neighbourhood and makes a life-changing request.

‘Zambra’s novels are like a phone call in the middle of the night from an old friend, and afterward, I missed the charming and funny voice on the other end, with its strange and beautiful stories’ – Nicole Krauss, author of Great House

‘A slim but thrilling novel from one of Chile’s outstanding young writers’ – Financial Times

Ways of Going Home manages, in its sparse, moving, constantly smoking cool-eyed Chilean way, to add up to a stark and timely study of fiction, truth, memory, family, revolution, secrets, lies, sex, Pinochet and death… A wonderful book’ – Dazed & Confused
