Traveling for the holidays? Snowed in by a nor’easter? Just want to relax with a good book while enjoying your time off work?
No matter the reason, you need something great to read! To help make your choice easier, Ox and Pigeon is offering Dead Stars by Álvaro Bisama, one of the best novels of 2014, for just $3.99.
A couple in the midst of a divorce sit in a café in an unnamed Chilean city. In the local newspaper the wife discovers a shocking photo of a classmate from her university days being taken into police custody. The couple spend the rest of the day trying to figure out how this former acquaintance—and, like her, the couple themselves, along with an entire generation of Chileans—could have reached this dead end almost unconsciously. Accompanied by a soundtrack of traditional Chilean folk music dueling with 80s hardcore, Dead Stars is filled with memorable characters desperately trying to escape their past, present, and future: a small-town metalhead; left-wing revolutionaries without a new cause; a brotherhood of cough syrup addicts; punks, prostitutes, and thieves.
