Una absolutamente maravillosa novela de debut que trata temas de amor, crimen, magia, destino y el momento en que un niño llega a su mayoría de edad. Ambientada en Australia en la década de 1980 inspirada por la originalidad, el encanto, la melancolía y la esencia de las novelas Incredibly Close y The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time.
La mente puede llevarte a donde quieras ir.

La vida de Eli Bell es complicada. Su padre está perdido, su madre está en la cárcel y su padrastro es un traficante de heroína.

Este niño exiliado del resto de mundo en Darra, tiene doce años con un alma vieja y la madurez mental de un adulto, está tratando de seguir su corazón, aprender lo que se necesita para ser un buen hombre, y entrenar para una glamorosa carrera en el periodismo. La vida, sin embargo, insiste en lanzar obstáculos en el camino de Eli, especialmente Tytus Broz, el legendario narcotraficante de Brisbane.
Y los verdaderos retos están por venir. Eli está a punto de enamorarse, tendrá que enfrentar a los chicos verdaderamente malos y luchar para salvar a su madre de una cierta perdición, todo antes de comenzar la escuela secundaria.

Textul de pe ultima copertă

An utterly wonderful debut novel of love, crime, magic, fate, and a boy’s coming-of-age, set in 1980s Australia
Eli Bell’s life is complicated. His father is lost, his mother is in jail, and his stepdad is a heroin dealer. The most steadfast adult in Eli’s life is Slim—a notorious felon and national record-holder for successful prison escapes—who watches over Eli and August, Eli’s silent genius of an older brother.
Exiled far from the rest of the world in Darra, a neglected suburb of Brisbane, this twelve-year-old boy with an old soul and an adult mind is just trying to follow his heart, learn what it takes to be a good man, and train for a glamorous career in journalism. Life, however, insists on throwing obstacles in Eli’s path—most notably Tytus Broz, Queensland’s legendary drug dealer.
But the real trouble lies ahead. Eli is about to fall in love, face off against truly bad guys, and fight to save his mother from certain doom—all before starting high school.
A story of brotherhood, true love, family, and the most unlikely of friendships, Boy Swallows Universe is the tale of an adolescent boy on the cusp of discovering the man he will be. Powerful, kinetic, and infused with originality, charm, pathos, and heart to spare, Trent Dalton’s debut is sure to be one of the most exhilarating novels you will experience.
