Ways of Going Home

Ways of Going Home by Alejandro Zambrano  is set against the backdrop of the fall of Allende and the rise of Pinochet, but there are no horrors in this book except the ones within the heart. We skirt the atrocities of Chile for the familial story of a boy who wanders the city in search of something he cannot define.  He has trouble with his women.  It’s an atmospheric novel, like Rivka Galchen, it’s like entering the spirit of a place and in that place, there are threads that often lead nowhere.
