Description

** With an introduction by Mariana Enríquez **

A Granta Book of the Year

'Cruel and strange and colourful.' Catherine Lacey
'Brimming with life, humour and a vital twist of darkness.' Alexandra Kleeman '
'A hellishly tender and hilariously twisted Little Women.' Pola Oloixarac
'Ruthlessly ambitious and honest.' Dizz Tate

Cousins is the jewel in Venturini's oeuvre - mischievous and stylish, vital and mysterious . . . and completely original. It is the story of four women from an impoverished, dysfunctional family in La Plata, Argentina. Neighborhood mythologies, family, female sexuality, vengeance, and social mobility through art are explored and scrutinized in the voice of an unforgettable protagonist, Yuna, who stares wildly at the world in which she is compelled to live; a voice unique in its candidness, sharp edge and utterly breathtaking power.
