Guardian Review

We the Animals by Justin Torres, reviewed by Patrick Ness

Torres's closest antecedent is probably the brilliant Junot Diaz. Not just in that both write about minority views of New York - Dominican for Diaz, Puerto Rican and gay for Torres - but also in their focus on the burgeoning anger of childhood. Unlike Torres, though, Diaz is unafraid to use both a wicked sense of humour and the burning filament of narrative to add blazing life to his work. Still, there is enormous potential evident in We the Animals. With a lighter touch, Torres could have some very interesting novels ahead of him. PATRIC NESS
