Synopsis:  Mariana Enriquez is a mesmerizing writer who demands to be read. Like Bolaño, she is interested in matters of life and death, and her fiction hits with the full force of a train’ Dave Eggers ‘Smoky, carnal and dazzling’ Lauren Groff Welcome to Buenos Aires, a city thrumming with murderous intentions and morbid desires, where missing children come back from the dead and unearthed bones carry terrible curses. These brilliant, unsettling tales of revenge, witchcraft, fetishes, disappearances and urban madness spill over with women and girls whose dark inclinations will lead them over the edge. ‘Spine-tingling but stunning… these glittering, gothic stories are a force to be reckoned with, and Enriquez’s talent and fearlessness is something to behold’ Financial Times ‘Brilliantly unsettling… Tricking us into waiting for a ghost to “put out its head”, Enríquez surprises us with real horror’ – Chris Power, Guardian
