Product Review (NBD):

-Precise and coiled and urgent. Magariel is able--as few writers can--to say so much in so little. A propulsive and intense debut.---Hanya Yanagihara, author of A Little Life -Brilliant, urgent, darkly funny, heartbreaking--a tour de force with startling new things to say about class, masculinity, addiction, and family. Daniel Magariel is an exciting new presence in American writing.---George Saunders, author of Tenth of December and Lincoln in the Bardo -With a charismatic, macho, drug-addicted dad, the young narrator pays an awful price to be One of the Boys in the riveting debut novel by Daniel Magariel. Move over Great Santini, this patriarch is rendered with such artful love, you'll be haunted by his presence long after you close this graceful and heartbreaking book.---Mary Karr, author of Lit and The Liar's Club -A captivating portrait of a wayward father, brimming with charm and trouble.---Justin Torres, author of We the Animals "Brilliant, urgent, darkly funny, heartbreaking--a tour de force with startling new things to say about class, masculinity, addiction, and family.

Like Emma Donoghue's Room, One of the Boys is impossible to resist as we root for these young men to escape their brutal (yet charismatic) father. We feel the strength of the child through Magariel's precise, understated and unflinching prose, which builds in emotion and suspense by keeping us very close to how each moment leads to the next. A beautiful debut."--Dana Spiotta, author of Innocents and Others -A deeply affecting portrait of innocence lost.

A beautiful debut.---Dana Spiotta, author of Innocents and Others -Daniel Magariel's absolutely brilliant and beautiful novel is that rarest thing: an incredibly mature book about kids. Not since I read Marilynne Robinson's Housekeeping have I felt so at once in the presence of the magic-logic terrors of childhood and the too real and consequential realms of adults. The children in this novel act like loving, terrified parents; the parents behave like the most destructive of children. Yet Magariel has managed to tell the story of this failing family with so much love and gentleness that the lasting impression of this novel--full of enraging scenes and calamitous decisions--is of the unknowing courage unique to youth.---Rivka Galchen, author of Atmospheric Disturbances "Daniel Magariel's absolutely brilliant and beautiful novel is that rarest thing: an incredibly mature book about kids.
