Synopsis









SHORTLISTED FOR THE MAN BOOKER INTERNATIONAL PRIZE 2017







'The book I wish I had written' Lisa Taddeo, author of Three Women and Animal







A young woman named Amanda lies dying in a remote Argentinian hospital. A boy named David sits beside her.







She's not his mother. He's not her child.







At David's ever more insistent prompting, Amanda recounts a series of events from the apparently recent past, a conversation that opens a chest of horrors. Together, they tell a haunting story of broken souls, toxins, and the power and desperation of family.







A chilling tale of maternal anxiety and ecological menace, Fever Dream is a modern classic. Samanta Schweblin's unforgettable debut is a prescient warning about our manipulation of the natural world, and an unforgettable exercise in literary suspense.

Staff Choice

An unsettling and enigmatic novella, Fever Dream unfurls with all the peculiar logic and terror of a nightmare. Schweblin channels the fears inherent within parenthood and brings into being a tense and sinister atmosphere, reminiscent of such distrubing classics as Henry James' The Turn of the Screw and Cormac McCarthy's The Road. Deservedly shortlisted for the Man Booker International Prize, Fever Dream will leave you gloriously spooked.
