About the Author

Alejandro Nodarse holds an MFA from the University of Miami and is an alum of Las Dos Brujas Writers Conference and a former staff member of the VONA Writers Conference. Blood in the Cut is his debut novel.


"Alejandro Nodarse's Blood in the Cut brings to vivid life a Cuban-American world that has been invisible in literature--until now. A place of illegal hunters and deadly swamps, of competing allegiances and the violences at the brutal heart of exile. Mr. Nodarse writes with rare insight, sensitivity, and beauty. An extraordinary debut!"
--Cristina García, author of Dreaming in Cuban, a finalist for the National Book Award

"Blood in The Cut brims with dangerous energy in the face of existential entropy. Alejandro Nodarse creates an immediately relatable scenario with a young man returning from prison then turns the whole narrative on its head in the best ways. A fantastic story."
--S. A. Cosby, New York Times bestselling author of All the Sinners Bleed

"Vivid, beautiful, raw and thrilling. Blood In The Cut is richly drawn, haunting and authentic. I loved it."
--Chris Whitaker, New York Times bestselling author of We Begin at the End

"Blood in the Cut is a gripping crime novel that starkly contrasts the tropical backdrop of South Florida with the darkest elements of great noir. Alejandro Nodarse is a true rising star."
--Alex Segura, bestselling author of Secret Identity and the Pete Fernandez Miami Mystery series

"Set in the Florida everglades where people disappear without a trace and alligators act as clean-up men, Alejandro Nodarse's Blood in the Cut is an intense and unflinching look at both the best and the worst of human nature; a harrowing, compelling, insightful, and deeply moving exploration of justice versus vengeance and the ephemeral nature of second chances. A stunning new voice in crime fiction, I predict we'll be reading Nodarse for a very long time."
--Karen Dionne, #1 international bestselling author of The Marsh King's Daughter and The Wicked Sister

"Cinematic and immersive, with true emotional heft, Blood in the Cut is a ferocious examination of family wounds and loyalty, of second chances scraped from the maw of a dangerous wilderness. Alejandro Nodarse has crafted a novel the way one rebuilds a classic muscle car: one propulsive piece at a time until it flies. I'll hold the Guerra family in my heart for a very long time."
--Katie Gutierrez, bestselling author of More Than You'll Ever Know
