about this item

?Every once in a while a novel does not record reality but creates a whole new reality, one that casts a light on our darkest feelings. Kafka did that. Bruno Schulz did that. Now the Spanish writer Andrés Barba has done it with the terrifying Such Small Hands.”?Edmund White

It was once a happy city; we were once happy girls. . . . Life changes at the orphanage the day Marina shows up. As she tries to find her place, she creates a game whose rules are dictated by a haunting violence. In hypnotic, lyrical prose, Andrés Barba evokes the pain of loss and the hunger for acceptance?a masterwork from the Spanish writer at the peak of his powers.

Andrés Barba is the award-winning Spanish author of August, October and Rain Over Madrid.

Lisa Dillman’s translation of Signs Preceding the End of the World, by Yuri Herrera, won the 2016 Best Translated Book Award.

Sales Handle: Shirley Jackson meets The Virgin Suicides, in a haunting novel set at an all-girls orphanage.
