Rafael Yglesias’s critically acclaimed debut novel of youth, privilege, and rebellion
Rafael Yglesias completed this novel, his first, at the age of sixteen. The largely autobiographical story follows a New York prep school dropout yearning for freedom and authenticity. On its release the book was hailed as a next-generation Catcher in the Rye. But protagonist Raul Sabas comes of age in a very different New York than Holden Caulfield—a tumultuous and radicalized city following the student takeover of Columbia University and assassinations of Robert Kennedy and Martin Luther King, Jr. Hide Fox, and All After is a story of adolescence written by an adolescent—deeply felt and commanding the remarkably perceptive eye that distinguishes Yglesias as a great novelist. This ebook features a new illustrated biography of Rafael Yglesias, including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from the author’s personal collection.
