Summary
The crunch of a bird's wing. Abandoned by the roadside, newlywed brides scream with rage as they are caught in the headlights of a passing car. A cloud of butterflies, so beautiful it smothers. Unearthly and unexpected, these stories burrow their way into your psyche with the feel of a sleepless night. Every shadow and bump in the dark takes on huge implications, leaving the pulse racing - blurring the line between the real and the strange
Summary
A first English-language collection of stories by the Man Booker International Prize-finalist author of Fever Dream incorporates themes of high suspense, psychological tension, unearthly restlessness and distortions in reality
