Things We Lost In The Fire

Service95 Recommends Things We Lost In The Fire by Mariana Enríquez

Things We Lost In The Fire

Mariana Enríquez (translated by Megan McDowell)

What Hay Cartagena Says: The International Booker Prize-shortlisted writer Mariana Enríquez must make it onto any list of contemporary Latin fiction. Her collection of short stories, Things We Lost In The Fire, is both disturbing and electrifying, with shadows of Shirley Jackson between the lines. Each tale simmers with Argentina’s troubled history. And yet among the haunted houses, dark magic and regrets, there is humour and hope.

What They Say: “A portrait of a world in fragments, a mirrorball made of razor blades” – Guardian

Available on, Waterstones, Barnes & Noble and Amazon
