A blazing new story collection that will make you feel like the house is collapsing in on you, from the three-time International Booker Prize finalist, ‘lead[ing] a vanguard of Latin American writers forging their own 21st-century canon.’ –O, the Oprah magazine

The world of Samanta Schweblin’s short stories is dark and destabilising. Here, home is not a place of safety but the site of hidden danger, silent menace, unspoken resentment. Picture-perfect doors and spotless windows conceal lives in disarray, slowly unraveling in the face of obsession and fear, jealousy and desire.

Unsettling, exhilarating and fiercely original, these prizewinning stories expose raw and uncomfortable truths about the people and places we think will keep us safe, and ask what happens when that promise proves empty.
