Editorial Reviews


“Sylvester memorably depicts the precarious existence and difficult choices that face undocumented immigrants to America.” Publishers Weekly

“Fans of Alice Hoffman and Polly Samson will appreciate [Sylvester’s] ability to blend the supernatural with the humdrum, imbuing each character in this droll yet tender novel with wit and warmth.” Booklist

“A forceful record of migration within a family and the dangers and triumphs of our undocumented population.” Kirkus Reviews

Everyone Knows You Go Home is a touching portrait of a family willing to risk everything for a better life, and what happens when they do.” —Refinery29

“Full of grayscale moralities, the family’s tale is one of difficult choices and the consequences that follow.” Harper’s Bazaar

“Natalia Sylvester has carved out a place between the living and the dead that will instantly have you hooked.” —HelloGiggles

“A satisfying, resonant ending concludes Sylvester’s emotionally insightful, multigenerational tale as the story comes full circle, beautifully complete.” Lone Star Literary

Everyone Knows You Go Home is a timely, necessary book that challenges its readers by asking: How much empathy can we offer to those whose stories the world has silenced?” —The Rumpus

“A beautifully written story that illuminates the complex allegiances of family and the costs of denying the past for the exigencies of the present. With great warmth, humor, and wisdom, Natalia Sylvester brings the border to vivid life in this timeless journey deep inside the human heart.” —Cristina García, author of Here in Berlin and Dreaming in Cuban

Everyone Knows You Go Home is a deeply satisfying read, beautifully illustrating how love and obligation shape our lives and give them meaning. Life on the borderlands—between Texas and Mexico, news reports and real life, history and memory, the living and the dead—creates an immersive world for exploring the mysteries that we all are to each other, bound as we may be by shared blood, shared love, and shared grief.” —ire’ne lara silva, author of flesh to bone

“I was charmed by this novel from the start, and when a character from the afterlife shows up—and when no one in the book thinks it unusual or strange—I was smitten. This is the tangled history of one family’s past and present both here and beyond. Sylvester’s gift is that she’s able to infuse it, in more ways than one, with extraordinary spirit and life.” —Cristina Henríquez, author of The Book of Unknown Americans

Everyone Knows You Go Home is a rich and moving story of love and secrets. Natalia Sylvester beautifully explores borders both physical and metaphysical.” —Ramona Ausubel, author of Sons and Daughters of Ease and Plenty and No One is Here Except All of Us

“Sylvester charms with a family saga that is both epic and intimate in scope, delivering an unforgettable tale of the boundless power of love and redemption. Everyone Knows You Go Home is a dreamy spell of a novel, a new window into the magic and mystery of the natural world and beyond.” —Patricia Engel, author of The Veins of the Ocean and Vida, a New York Times Notable Book of the Year
