CANTORAS: A NOVEL — Forthcoming fall 2019

I’m delighted to say that my next novel, Cantoras, has a pub date: September 3, 2019.


The cover for CANTORAS.

The cover for CANTORAS.


The cover design draws on photographs taken by my wife, Pamela Harris, on the shore of Cabo Polonio, Uruguay, a historic haven for queer people where much of the book is set. It’s a true gift to see a cover that so keenly reflects the terrain of Uruguay, and the actual land I’ve done my b...

“There's that feeling that comes when you read something and the lines speak directly to you, and to you only, even though the person who wrote them died long before you were born, or, even if alive, has no idea you exist. The words seep right into your mind. They pour into your secret hollows and take their shape, a perfect fit, like water. And you are slightly less alone in the universe, because you have been witnessed, because you have been filled, because someone once found words for things within you that you couldn't yourself name – something gesturing not only toward what you are, but what you could become.”
Carolina De Robertis, Perla

“She was awake, alive, full of ideas like branches in a greenhouse, growing thick and rife against the glass.”
Carolina De Robertis, The Invisible Mountain

“He was like a bottle and music was the wine.... She liked to be near him when it poured.”
Carolina De Robertis, The Invisible Mountain
