A singular, soul-rattling novel... Mariana Enriquez's terrifying, lush, blood-soaked epic masterfully uses the occult to depict unspeakable brutality, political oppression, and the tragedy of Argentina's disappeared to devastating effect, while powerfully exploring the lengths a parent will go to protect their child. I've never read anything like it and I'll never forget my time in Enriquez's mesmerizing world.
Jessamine Chan, New York Times bestselling author of The School for Good Mothers
A novel so disquieting, so unsettling I could neither put it down, nor read it late at night. Enriquez's short stories had already made me a fan for life - her novel is going to haunt me for the rest of my life
