Nazaré tells the story of a peasants’ revolt in the polyglot city of Balaal. A homeless boy and a washerwoman cobble together an army of fishermen, shopkeepers, lapsed nuns, anarchist bats, and an itinerant camel in an attempt to end the brutal reign of a dictator. A magical realist adventure, Nazaré has been compared to the work of Gabriel Garcia Márquez and Mario Vargas Llosa. The book won the Independent Publisher’s Book Award and the Foreword INDIES Book Award, was shortlisted for the Hurston/Wright Fiction Award and nominated for the William Saroyan International Prize for Writing.
