'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' - Kelly Link, author of White Cat, Black Dog and Get in Trouble, finalist for the Pulitzer Prize
