Description

‘A portrait of a world in fragments, a mirrorball made of razor blades’ Guardian

Sleep-deprived fathers conjuring phantoms; sharp-toothed children and stolen skulls; persecuted young women drawn to self-immolation. Organized crime sits side-by-side with the occult in Buenos Aires – a place where reality and the preternatural fuse into strange, new shapes. These stories follow the wayward and downtrodden, revealing the scars of Argentina’s dictatorship and the ghosts and traumas that have settled in the minds of its people. Provocative, brutal and uncanny, Things We Lost in the Fire is a paragon of contemporary Gothic from a writer of singular vision.

‘Mariana Enriquez is a mesmerizing writer who demands to be read. Like Bolano, she is interested matters of life and death, and her fiction hits with the force of a freight train.’ Dave Eggers
