When Women Kill: Four Crimes Retold

Service95 Recommends When Women Kill by Alia Trabucco Zerán

When Women Kill: Four Crimes Retold

Alia Trabucco Zerán (translated by Sophie Hughes)

What Hay Cartagena Says: Witches, hysterics, or femmes fatales – lots of literature struggles to depict women who do bad things. Here, novelist Alia Trabucco Zerán retells the stories of four iconic homicides committed by Chilean women in the 20th century. The non-fiction narrative explores both the crimes but also society’s reaction to them.

What They Say: “Exquisitely translated by Sophie Hughes, When Women Kill conveys the wonder of a writer determined to uncover the truth about factual events by using story” – Megan Bradbury, Times Literary Supplement

Available on, Waterstones, Barnes & Noble and Amazon
