';A wonderful nightmare of a book: tender and frightening, disturbing but compassionate. Fever Dream is a triumph of Schweblin's
outlandish imagination.' Juan Gabriel Vasquez, author of The Sound of Things Falling and ReputationsA young woman named Amanda
lies dying in a rural hospital clinic. A boy named David sits beside her. She's not his mother. He's not her child. Together,
they tell a haunting story of broken souls, toxins, and the power and desperation of family. Fever Dream is a nightmare
come to life, a ghost story for the real world, a love story and a cautionary tale. One of the freshest new voices to come
out of the Spanish language and translated into English for the first time, Samanta Schweblin creates an aura of strange psychological
menace and otherworldly reality in this absorbing, unsettling, taut novel.
