NAMED A MOST ANTICIPATED BOOK OF 2018 BY Buzzfeed - The Wall Street Journal - The Millions - Southern Living - Bustle - Esquire - Entertainment Weekly - Nylon - Mashable "Cassaras's propulsive and profound first novel, finding one's home in the world-particularly in a subculture plagued by fear and intolerance from society-comes with tragedy as well as extraordinary personal freedom." -- Esquire A gritty and gorgeous debut that follows a cast of gay and transgender club kids navigating the Harlem ball scene of the 1980s and '90s, inspired by the real House of Xtravaganza made famous by the seminal documentary Paris Is Burning It's 1980 in New York City, and nowhere is the city's glamour and energy better reflected than in the burgeoning Harlem ball scene, where seventeen-year-old Angel first comes into her own. Burned by her traumatic past, Angel is new to the drag world, new to ball culture, and has a yearning inside of her to help create family for those without. When she falls in love with Hector, a beautiful young man who dreams of becoming a professional dancer, the two decide to form the House of Xtravaganza, the first-ever all-Latino house in the Harlem ball circuit. But when Hector dies of AIDS-related complications, Angel must bear the responsibility of tending to their house alone. As mother of the house, Angel recruits Venus, a whip-fast trans girl who dreams of finding a rich man to take care of her; Juanito, a quiet boy who loves fabrics and design; and Daniel, a butch queen who accidentally saves Venus's life. The Xtravaganzas must learn to navigate sex work, addiction, and persistent abuse, leaning on each other as bulwarks against a world that resists them. All are ambitious, resilient, and determined to control their own fates, even as they hurtle toward devastating consequences. Told in a voice that brims with wit, rage, tenderness, and fierce yearning, The House of Impossible Beauties is a tragic story of love, family, and the dynamism of the human spirit.

Dark Constellations

A Remezcla Best Book by Latino and Latin American Authors of 2019 Praise for Dark Constellations “A slim allegory written with a chat forum’s acrid wit . . . [A] spot-on depiction of tech-industry misogyny.” —The Atlantic “Oloixarac toggles between severity and satire with Borgesian ease, yet her bleak visions of a society so easily conquered by a small number of amoral innovators is eerily plausible, and captured with an evocative lyricism.” —AV Club “An ambitiously expansive novel.” —Vulture  “Rendered in beautiful English by Roy Kesey, whose translation reveals the complex layers of scientific, mystical, and technological vocabulary that Oloixarac so fearlessly wields. . . A wonderfully bizarre mix of scientific treatise, hallucinogenic history, and cyberpunk thriller.” —World Literature Today “Combining esoteric sciences, arts, technologies, cultures, philosophies and even lexicons with heightened, poetic and dreamlike scenes and descriptions, [Oloixarac] transports readers into a reality at once entirely extraordinary and all too familiar.” —Spine Magazine “ Dark Constellations delivers exactly what you want in high-end science fiction—a deep thinker of a novel with a wide-eyed gusto for getting weird.” —Southwest Review  “Despite following characters whose actions are essential to the species-wide transformations the novel depicts, the narrative often has a sense of inevitability, as if Niklas, Cassio, and Piera were merely performing foreordained parts in a dance they are only dimly aware of . . . this is not a traditional story, in which character drives event, but rather one in which characters are driven to action by forces they don’t quite understand, and are helpless to resist.” — Strange Horizons “An enjoyable and enlightening read . . . readers are bound to close the book with an appreciation for Oloixarac’s erudition and skill.” —Asymptote Journal “Asks questions about exploration and colonization, about big data and the curve of an individual life, all while being weird and ambitious.”  — Remezcla  “Dark Constellations is a grand saga of the anthropocene fever dream, spanning numerous continents, centuries, and species. With the technophilic, psychedelic flair of Thomas Pynchon and William Gibson, Pola Oloixarac tacks up miles of red yarn between 19th-century explorers, Argentinian cryptographers, secluded island tribes, computational biologists, and more. A novel of high style and heavyweight ideas, Dark Constellations charts a sublime order through the ritualistic carnage of science. Also, sex.”  —Tony Tulathimutte, author of Private Citizens   “With Dark Constellations, Pola Oloixarac exceeds the high expectations she set with Savage Theories, her deliciously wicked debut. Whip-smart and gleefully irreverent, Oloixarac's new novel establishes her as Argentina's  most ferocious literary export. Fusing sci-fi and slapstick, Dark Constellations goes where no American writer would dare to tread. If you thought satire was dead, you haven't been reading Pola Oloixarac.” —Adam Morris, author of American Messiahs: False Prophets of a Damned Nation “ Dark Constellations has a daring and turbulent erudition. It’s a cyberpunk with the bright colors of Latin America.” —Carol Bensimon, author of We All Loved Cowboys “Intriguing and terrifying . . . [the] 19th century interludes that thread through the novel, a fever dream of sex and hallucinogenics and weird experiments, contrast beautifully against the straightlaced prose of Cassio and Piera’s story.”  —Locus Magazine “This genre-defying novel blends science fiction with cyberpunk with naturalism to end up with something utterly original . . . Oloixarac is
