SHORTLISTED FOR THE INTERNATIONAL BOOKER PRIZE ‘Beautiful, horrible… the most exciting discovery I’ve made in fiction for some time’ Kazuo Ishiguro ‘Smoky, carnal, dazzling’ Lauren Groff Welcome to Buenos Aires, a place of nightmares and twisted imaginings, where missing children come back from the dead and unearthed bones carry terrible curses.
