Daniel Alarcón 

When: Sat., Nov. 9, 7 p.m. 2013
The publisher’s copy for At Night We Walk in Circles, the newest novel by San Francisco-based Daniel Alarcón, is rife with words like “suspenseful” and “compulsively readable.” And to be clear, the book — which follows a down-on-his-luck actor on a journey, in every sense of the word, through the Andes as part of a guerilla theater troupe — is a page-turner of the first order, but this is the kind of suspense that comes not like a speeding train but a slow-burning fuse, one that’s derived not from external plot gimmicks but the masterfully slow revelation that All Is Not What It Seems. It’s a brilliant novel; hear Alarcón discuss it at Diesel (5433 College Ave., Oakland).
