"A riveting and emotionally harrowing debut about two young brothers and their physically and psychologically abusive father--One of the Boys is 160 perfect, stunning pages by a major new talent. The three of them--a twelve-year-old boy, his older brother, their father--have won the war: the father's term for his bitter divorce and custody battle. They leave their Kansas home and drive through the night to Albuquerque, eager to begin again, united by the thrilling possibility of carving out a new life together. The boys go to school, join basketball teams, make friends. Meanwhile their father works from home, smoking cheap cigars to hide another smell. But soon the little missteps--the dead-eyed absentmindedness, the late night noises, the comings and goings of increasingly odd characters--become sinister, and the boys find themselves watching their father change, grow erratic, then violent. Set in the sublimely stark landscape of suburban New Mexico and a cramped apartment shut tight to the world, One of the Boys conveys with stunning prose and chilling clarity a young boy's struggle to hold onto the dangerous pieces of his shattered family. Harrowing and beautiful, Daniel Magariel's masterful debut is a story of survival: two foxhole-weary brothers banding together to protect each other from the father they once trusted, but no longer recognize. With the emotional core of A Little Life and the compact power of We the Animals, One of the Boys is among the most moving and remarkable debut novels you'll ever read"--"A riveting and emotionally harrowing debut about two young brothers and their physically and psychologically abusive father--One of the Boys is 160 perfect, stunning pages by a major new talent"--… (mere)

I received this book free from the publisher via netgalley.com in exchange for an honest review.

This was a heartbreaking story about two sons on the run with their abusive father.

Many triggers including abuse and addiction.

More to come.. ( )

Brutal and sparse tale of an abusive father who lures his young sons along with him on his death spiral. ( )
  ThomasPluck | Apr 27, 2020 |
This book is pretty graphic with abuse- physical and emotional. This was a tough read as far as the content of the book goes. The epilogue threw me off at the end. I felt like the book would have been better without the epilogue. Or if the epilogue had been placed as just another chapter between chapters 1 & 2. ( )

One of the saddest reads on family violence ever, with a tiny glimmer of hope at the end. Told by a twelve year old boy, he and his older brother are taken from Kansas to New Mexico by their father after their family is split apart. At first it gives the appearance of a liberating road trip, but as the father's weaknesses and cruelties are revealed, the dire situation for the boys becomes painfully apparent. No authority intervenes and the madness continues. The only possibilities for the brothers are their closeness and their valiant attempts to wrest control of their fate. Well written but an ordeal to read.

Quote: "My father equated the granting of privacy with respect." ( )
