Pressestimmen

"Barefoot Dogs is a splendid collection.Each of these stories is a straight-on jab to the soul, the kind of sharp fictional punch that wakes us up to our own flawed, fragile, essential humanity. With this debut collection, Antonio Ruiz-Camacho shows he's already a writer of the first rank, one of those rare storytellers who leaves you wanting more even as he breaks your heart." (Ben Fountain author of Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk)

Kurzbeschreibung

An unforgettable debut of linked stories that follow the members and retinue of a wealthy Mexican family forced into exile after the patriarch is kidnapped.

On an unremarkable night, José Victoriano Arteaga—the head of a thriving Mexico City family—vanishes on his way home from work. The Arteagas find few answers; the full truth of what happened to Arteaga is lost to the shadows of Mexico’s vast and desperate underworld, a place of rampant violence and kidnappings, and government corruption. But soon packages arrive to the family house, offering horrifying clues.

Fear, guilt, and the prospect of financial ruination fracture the once-proud family and scatter them across the globe, yet delicate threads still hold them together: in a swimming pool in Palo Alto, Arteaga’s young grandson struggles to make sense of the grief that has hobbled his family; in Mexico City, Arteaga’s mistress alternates between rage and heartbreak as she waits, in growing panic, for her lover’s return; in Austin, the Arteagas’ housekeeper tries to piece together a second life in an alienating and demeaning new land; in Madrid, Arteaga’s son takes his ailing dog through the hot and unforgiving streets, in search of his father’s ghost.

Multiple award-winning author Antonio Ruiz-Camacho offers an exquisite and intimate evocation of the loneliness, love, hope, and fear that can bind a family even as unspeakable violence tears it apart. “A straight-on jab to the soul” (Ben Fountain, author of Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk), Barefoot Dogs is a heartfelt elegy to the stolen innocence of every family struck by tragedy. This is urgent and vital fiction.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Captivating story! 3. Januar 2014
Von Susana Guzman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

I highly recommend Barefoot Dogs story. I liked how the author, Antonio Ruiz-Camacho lead the reader through smooth transitions between past and present, settings and characters that come together to create an interesting and enjoyable fiction story. I felt sometimes as if I was witnessing worrisome situations, signs of our time for some countries. Likewise, I caught myself laughing with vivid episodes of the interactions between characters.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Can't wait to read more from this author! 7. Januar 2014
Von Elena Vega - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I have to confess I bought this story and then let it sit for about 6 weeks in my Kindle list. But yesterday I started reading and I couldn't stop. Now I NEED to read more. The story is about a family that flees from Mexico City after the patriarch disappears (apparently kidnaped) .. I understand this is a series of stories that will narrate what happens to each member of the family... I really can't wait to read the whole series. Looking very much forward.
