A city seethes with murderous intentions, family betrayals and morbid desires in this masterpiece of contemporary Gothic.

Shortlisted for the International Booker Prize

'Smoky, carnal, dazzling' - Lauren Groff

Welcome to Buenos Aires, a place of nightmares and twisted imaginings, where missing children come back from the dead and unearthed bones carry terrible curses.

Thrumming with murderous intentions, family betrayals and morbid desires, these stories shine a light on a violent city gripped by urban madness; giving voice to the lost, the oppressed and the forgotten. Lucid and darkly poetic, unsettling and otherworldly, these tales of revenge, witchcraft and fetishes are a masterpiece of contemporary Gothic and a bewitching exploration of the dark inclinations that threaten to lead us over the edge.

'There is some serious power in this writing' - Daisy Johnson
