Description

"Trasandes eloquently renders the passionate and heartrending love story...it's rare to root for all sides of a love triangle, but the author's depth of insight into her characters makes this a wonderfully accomplished first novel."--Publisher's Weekly

An unforgettably haunting novel--intertwining stories reveal how a man and a woman fall in love with the same extraordinary person

Broken Like This by Monica Trasandes is the saga of Kate Harrington--who for the past fifteen years has been the muse, provocateur and lodestone in the lives of Louis Ross and Angela Agnelli. After a car accident in Ibiza, Kate lies comatose and is, unbeknownst to anyone, two months pregnant. Angela and Louis both fly to her side, as does Kate's step-father, who's been a dark presence in all of their lives for many years. Told in present day and breathtaking flashbacks, by turns bittersweet and brutally honest--this is a remarkable debut.
What begins as an evocative story of love and identity evolves, faster and faster, into a high-scale drama--with a conclusion that is truly heartrending. From sunny, Southern California to the sweaty, musical streets of Brazil; from a garden in Boston to a rooftop in Brooklyn--Broken Like This is a rare novel that captures the utter joy felt when meeting that person whose energy and passion will shape your life forever.

Publishers Weekly Review

Sep 24, 2012 – In her transcendent debut, Uruguay-born Trasandes eloquently renders the passionate and heartrending love story of Kate Harrington, a bold, energetic young woman who, in the process of documenting young sex workers for her college thesis, addresses her own abusive past. Kate is the type of person who transforms the lives of anyone lucky enough to be part of her inner circle: first Louis, the shy, self-conscious guy she meets in high school, is captivated by her frank sexual talk and adventurous view of life, and blossoms through the course of their friendship. Some years later, Angela, a Latina from Southern California who is in Spain with Kate on their year abroad, comes to a moving discovery about her own sexuality when their friendship becomes something more. Trasandes begins her gripping tale with tragedy, then moves fluidly through time and space, illuminating Kate’s disturbing adolescence with her predatory stepfather, her joyous relationship with Louis, then Angela. It’s rare to root for all sides of a love triangle, but the author’s depth of insight into her characters makes this a wonderfully accomplished first novel.
