SHORTLISTED FOR THE MAN BOOKER INTERNATIONAL PRIZE 2017'The book I wish I had written' Lisa Taddeo, author of Three Women and AnimalA 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.
