Product description


"In 1988 Santiago, Chile, a shadowy narrator known only as Javier runs a creepy business known as Human Solutions, which guarantees to make its clients’ desires come true via the manipulation of others."
Publishers Weekly

"If The Boys From Brazil was written by Paul Auster, you'd have Human Solutions. Prepare for a one-sitting read."
— Robert Hough, author of Dr. Brinkley's Tower, The Final Confession of Mabel Stark, The Stowaway, and The Culprits

"Avi Silberstein's stunning debut is gripping, disturbing, darkly funny, and impossible to put down. The writing is taut and spare, creating a sharply etched portrait of 1980s Chile. Triumphant."
— Carmen Aguirre, author of Something Fierce: Memoirs of a Revolutionary Daughter, 2012 winner of Canada Reads
