Staff Choice

Schweblin's novella, Fever Dream, made a huge impact on me and I haven't stopped recommending it since the day it was published. So, I was very excited to get my hands on a copy of Mouthful of Birds and I'm pleased to report that it didn't disappoint. These short stories showcase Schweblin's mastery of the ominous, of narratives in which terror slowly builds. Other than Mariana Enriquez, I can think of few other contemporary writers capable of generating such a sense of unease and in so small a space. These stories bed down in your mind, where they continue to fester and work their subtle magic.
