Staff Reviews

I started this book with my windows open. By the time I finished, every possible entry point into my apartment was closed, locked, and blocked with a heavy object. Such is the power of Mariana Enríquez's short, incredibly dark stories! They are a mixture of the realistic and the fantastic: the most terrible parts of human nature meeting supernatural forces that are only debatably worse. THINGS WE LOST IN THE FIRE left me filled with dread, avoiding mirrors and windows out of a fear I can't put a name to. And yet, I loved this book! Everything I've read recently pales in comparison to the raw brutality in these pages.



An arresting collection of short stories, reminiscent of Shirley Jackson and Julio Cortazar, by an exciting new international talent.
