Literature and Fiction
A powerful, eerily unsettling story collection from a
major international literary star.
The brilliant stories in Mouthful of Birds burrow
their way into your psyche and don't let go. Samanta
Schweblin haunts and mesmerizes in this extraordinary
collection featuring women on the edge, men turned upside
down, the natural world at odds with reality. We think life
is one way, but often, it's not -- our expectations for how
people act, love, fear can all be upended. Each character in
Mouthful of Birds must contend with the unexpected,
whether a family coming apart at the seams or a child
transforming or a ghostly hellscape or a murder.
Schweblin's stories have the feel of a sleepless night,
where every shadow and bump in the dark take on huge
implications, leaving your pulse racing, and the line
between the real and the strange blurs.
