Description

The mysteries of kinship (families born into and families made) take disconcerting and familiar shapes in these refreshingly frank short stories. A family is haunted by a beast that splatters fruit against its walls every night, another undergoes a near-collision with a bus on the way home from the beach. Mothers are cold, fathers are absent-we know these moments in the abstract, but Adaui makes each as uncanny as our own lives: close but not yet understood.

Publisher Review

"haunting....Adaui's poetic prose elevates the poignancy of these mostly somber stories" -Publishers Weekly "A kaleidoscopic collection that takes a sharp, dark look at family and how we survive it." -Kirkus "With this book Katia Adaui consolidates her position as one of the most subtle and original Peruvian writers in recent years." -El Pais "Adaui belongs to a resurgence of women storytellers who have restored the pleasure of reading stories that leave us suffering from their sweet intoxication." -WMagazin
