Publisher Review

Secrets and revenge converge in this chilling tale from a breakout new Latin American voice

Many years have passed since Lucas was expelled from his childhood home by Felisberto and Eloy, the two men who arrived uninvited and slowly, insidiously, made it their own. Now Lucas is back, fully grown and intent on claiming his rightful inheritance.

But he is not interested in the house as it once was, in his mother’s lovingly planted flowerbeds – now conquered by weeds – nor in the lavish portraits covering every wall. Lucas belongs to a darker world, one crawling with the only creatures he really trusts: insects. As the house crumbles before his eyes, Lucas turns to the allies of his underground kingdom to help him take revenge.

Weaving together past and present like a spider’s web, This World Does Not Belong to Us is a spine-tingling story of human greed, from a masterful new literary voice.
