Description

SOON TO BE A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE In this groundbreaking debut, Justin Torres plunges us into the chaotic heart of one family, the intense bonds of three brothers, and the mythic effects of this fierce love on the people we must become. "We the Animals is a dark jewel of a book. It's heartbreaking. It's beautiful. It resembles no other book I've read."—Michael Cunningham "A miracle in concentrated pages, you are going to read it again and again." —Dorothy Allison "Rumbles with lyric dynamite . . . Torres is a savage new talent." —Benjamin Percy, Esquire "A fiery ode to boyhood . . . A welterweight champ of a book." —NPR, Weekend Edition "A tremendously gifted writer whose highly personal voice should excite us in much the same way that Raymond Carver's or Jeffrey Eugenides's voice did when we first heard it." —Washington Post "A novel so honest, poetic, and tough that it makes you reexamine what it means to love and to hurt." —O, The Oprah Magazine "The communal howl of three young brothers sustains this sprint of a novel . . . A kind of incantation." —The New Yorker
