Summary
What is a mother anyway when her children are asleep? What could she possibly be? If a tree falls in a forest. It's like that, isn't it? A mother moves to Geneva with her husband and their two young children. In their beautiful new rented apartment, surrounded by their rented furniture, and several Swiss instructions to maintain quiet, she finds herself totally isolated. Her husband's job means he is almost never present, and her entire world is caring for her children - making sure they are happy, and fed and comfortable, and that they can be seen as the happy, well-fed, comfortable family they should be. Everything is perfect. But, of course, it's not. The isolation, the sleeplessness, the demands of two people under two, are getting to Erika. She has never been so alone, and once the children are asleep, there are just too many hours to fill until morning, and there is something coming to get her... Kyra Wilder's Little Bandaged Days is a beautifully written, painfully claustrophobic story about a woman's descent into madness. Unpredictable, frighteningly compelling and brutally honest, it grapples with the harsh conditions of motherhood and this mother's own identity, and as the novel continues, we begin to wonder just what exactly Erika might be driven to do
