A Guatemalan-American writer returns to the Boston suburb of his youth in this American Book Awardwinning novel "full of rebellious comedy and vitality" (New Yorker).

A 2022 Pulitzer Prize Finalist

In Monkey Boy, Francisco Goldman's "brilliantly constructed auto-fiction" (NPR), we meet Francisco Goldberg, a middle-aged writer grappling with the challenges of family and love, legacies of violence and war, and growing up as the son of immigrants.

Having fled Mexico after his journalism provokes the wrong people, Goldberg's attempt to start fresh in New York. But even as he finds himself falling in love, he is drawn away yet againback to his childhood home in the white, working-class suburbs of Boston.

Frankie is beckoned there by a high school girlfriend who witnessed his youthful humiliations, and by his ailing mother, Yolanda, whose intermittent lucidity unearths forgotten pockets of the past. His brief trip is haunted by memories of his recently deceased father, the Guatemalan woman who helped raise him, and the high school bullies who called him "monkey boy."
