Available

Description

 

A SPELLBINDINGLY CREEPY COLLECTION OF SHORT STORIES, FROM AN ARGENTINIAN LITERARY STAR

'The Grimm brothers and Franz Kafka pay a visit to Argentina in Samanta Schweblin's darkly humorous tales.' J.M. Coetzee

 

Spine-tingling and unexpected, unearthly and strange, the stories of Mouthful of Birds are impossible to forget.

The crunch of a bird's wing.

A cloud of butterflies, so beautiful it smothers.

A crimson flash of blood across an artist's canvas.

Samanta Schweblin's writing expertly blurs the line between the surreal and the everyday, pulling the reader into a world that is at once nightmarish and beautiful. An exhilarating tour de force guaranteed to leave the pulse racing.

'This is our world, and sharp-focused, but stripped of its usual meanings... Brutal violence is twisted into horrific, intensely experienced art.' Guardian

*Longlisted for the Man Booker International Prize, 2019*
