A moving tribute to childhood, Ferrada's novel is an enthralling tale of resilience, deception, and trauma during a dark time in Chile's history.--Publishers Weekly
Complex in its simplicity, and full of life and mystery.--Frances de Pontes Peebles, author of The Air You Breathe
A debut as haunting as it is charming, a study in contrast between the simplicity of childhood and the heaviness of adulthood. Readers will fly through this slim novel, which is perfect for discussion.--Booklist
How to Order the Universe is a dreamscape of a book. In an assured and striking voice, María José Ferrada tells the story of M, a girl who skips school to join her traveling salesman father on the road. Along the way, M witnesses tragedy, desire, secrecy, and grief as she finds her own truths and learns to separate her father's disappointments from her own. I adored this compelling, wise, and utterly unique coming-of-age tale.--Tara Conklin, author of The Last Romantics
