Wedding planner. Sister. Daughter. Olga needs to awaken to what matters most in her life as she grapples with love, identity, and family secrets in this blazing debut novel.


The extraordinary accomplishment of Olga Dies Dreaming is in how a familiar-enough tale—a woman seeking love, hap­pi­ness, and ful­fill­ment in the big city—slowly reveals itself to be something else altogether . . . the very idea of the American Dream. Rumaan Alam, author of Leave the World Behind

Wisdom, tenderness and abundant humor…I will think about its richly drawn, deeply human characters for a very long time. Cynthia Sweeney, author of The Nest and Good Company

Gonzalez’s Olga hustles, stumbles, falls, and eventually finds her way . . . A poignant, scalding debut. Jaquira Díaz, author of Ordinary Girls
