Daniel Alarcón - At Night We Walk in Circles


Set in an unnamed, South American country in the aftermath of war, At Night We Walk in Circles ($27.95) shares the tone and masterful prose of the work of Roberto Bolaño, and is driven by a suspenseful plot that makes it impossible to put down. The story centers around a young actor, Nelson, who becomes a part of a radical guerilla theater troupe he’s long aspired to join. Nelson becomes hopelessly entangled with the group and we learn about Nelson’s rise and downfall through the investigation of our narrator, a man obsessed with uncovering Nelson’s mysterious story. In sharp, vivid and beautiful prose, Alarcón delivers a compulsively readable narrative and a provocative meditation on fate, identity, and the large consequences that can result from even our smallest choices.
