Fever Dream: A Novel

Fever Dream: A Novel

"This is a one-sitting read, a thriller and a sick haze, a distillation of decades of Argentinian gothic literary tradition into something I've never seen before and something you'll remember at odd moments, in between news articles and in the middle of the night. Tragedy is most poignant when it is no one's fault, and horror is most scary when there is no discernible perpetrator but all of us."

A young woman named Amanda lies dying in a rural hospital clinic. A boy named David sits beside her. She’s not his mother. He's not her child. Together, they tell a haunting story of broken souls, toxins, and the power and desperation of family.       
Fever Dream is a nightmare come to life, a ghost story for the real world, a love story and a cautionary tale. One of the freshest new voices to come out of the Spanish language and translated into English for the first time, Samanta Schweblin creates an aura of strange psychological menace and otherworldly reality in this absorbing, unsettling, taut novel.
