Translated from the Spanish by Alice Whitmore
A young Argentinian woman feels her identity is in pieces. Diffident, self-critical, wary of commitment, she is condemned, or condemns herself, to repeated acts of departure, from places, parents, and lovers. Then, arriving in the southernmost region of Patagonia, she convinces herself she has found happiness, until she’s caught up in the horrific murders that haunt her story.
All My Goodbyes
“All My Goodbyes is a virtuoso performance. A love story told in razor-sharp fragments, the novel lies at the intersection of memory, violence, and trauma.”—Katie Kitamura, author of A Separation
"Mariana Dimópulos's wonderfully strange and addictive All My Goodbyes is narrated by a woman driven to abandon everything the moment it becomes familiar. The scattered pieces of her story—each of them wonderfully distinct, laced with insight, violence, and sensuality—cohere into a profound evocation of restlessness, of the sublime and imprisoning act of letting go."—Julie Buntin, author of Marlena
“A marvelously interior novel, unique in its perceptions, that traffics both in the joy of invention and the sorrow of memory.”—Kirkus Reviews (Starred Review)
“A fascinating kaleidoscope of regret.”—Publishers Weekly
“Remarkable . . . The destabilizing sequence of events illuminates Dimópulos’s commitment to portraying a new global citizenship characterized by interruption, dispersal, and disruption.”—BOMB
