Enriquez, Mariana


ISBN 9780451495129, 0451495128

Trade Paperback | 224 pages


The "phenomenal" (Vanity Fair) story collection by the International Booker-shortlisted author of The Dangers of Smoking in Bed and Our Share of Night—in paperback for the first time and with a new short story.

The short stories of Mariana Enriquez are "the most exciting discovery I’ve made in fiction for some time.”—Kazuo Ishiguro

Electric, disturbing, and exhilarating, the stories of Things We Lost in the Fire explore multiple dimensions of life and death in contemporary Argentina. Each haunting tale simmers with the nation's troubled history, but among the abandoned houses, black magic, superstitions, lost loves and regrets, there is also friendship, compassion, and humor. Translated by the National Book Award-winning Megan McDowell, these "slim but phenomenal" (Vanity Fair) stories ask the biggest questions of life and show why Mariana Enriquez has become one of the most celebrated new voices in global literature.
