Description

Animals at the End of the World begins with an explosion, which six-year-old In�s mistakes for the end of the world that she has long feared. In the midst of the chaos, she meets the maid's granddaughter, Mari�, who becomes her best friend and with whom she navigates the adult world in her grandparents' confined house. Together, they escape the house and confront the "animals" that populate Bogot� in the 1980s. But In�s soon realizes she cannot count on either Mar�a or her preoccupied and conflicted parents. Alone, she must learn to decipher her outer and inner worlds, confronting both armies of beasts and episodes of domestic chaos. In the process, she also learns what it means to test boundaries, break rules, and cope with the consequences.

The first novel by Colombian author Gloria Susana Esquivel, Animals at the End of the World is a poetic and moving coming-of-age story that lingers long after its final page.
