We are beyond excited to share the cover for David Martinez’s debut memoir, Bones Worth Breaking coming out April 9, 2024! Designed by Alex Merto.

Bones Worth Breaking is a portrait of the unbreakable bond between brothers, David and Mike Martinez, who grew up in a mixed Black and white, Brazilian and American, Mormon family in Idaho. Martinez defies a linear telling of his life, and tackles topics from abuse and racism, to writing and capturing the meaning of the specific nostalgia of saudade. It’s a remarkable, unforgettable story.

In this heart-felt depiction of the lives of two brothers who end up taking different life paths—one that leads to redemption and the other to a tragic end—David Martinez reminds us of the danger that comes with hiding our wounds. Beautiful and deeply moving, Bones Worth Breaking is a book worth reading. —Obed Silva, author of The Death of My Father the Pope

Written with uncanny grit and beauty, Bones Worth Breaking is as much a personal revelation as it is an American reckoning. Martinez’s prose at times left me breathless. —Liska Jacobs, author of The Pink Hotel
