About the Author
Peter Grandbois writes with uncommon beauty and marvelous care about the deepest complexities of history and heart. Half-Burnt is filled with love and truth and pain and rage and endurance and desire. It's about false endings and true beginnings and all the jagged mysteries that attend the human journey. I'm so glad I read it.
Laird Hunt, author of In the House in the Dark of the Woods
This is a novel where fiction, myth, and historical reality intertwine with ponderous lyrical force. Told as a lucid dream, the story cycles from one mouth to another, from the dead to the living, unraveling like a river and piercing like an arrow. Peter Grandbois creates a splendid sense of otherworldliness echoing Rulfo's Pedro Páramo. We face vengeance, desire, possessing spirits, and the question of belonging to a primordial earth, a story as ancient and vivid as the touch of man. And at the end of the novel, we can do nothing but marvel at the brilliant feat and thank Grandbois for his courage.
Jorge Armenteros, author of The Roar of the River
