The Dangers of Smoking in Bed

Author(s): Mariana Enriquez

General Fiction

'Mariana Enriquez is a mesmerizing writer who demands to be read. Like Bolano, she is interested in matters of life and death, and her fiction hits with the full force of a train' - Dave Eggers

Welcome to Buenos Aires, a city thrumming with murderous intentions and morbid desires, where missing children come back from the dead and unearthed bones carry terrible curses. These brilliant, unsettling tales of revenge, witchcraft, fetishes, disappearances and urban madness spill over with women and girls whose dark inclinations will lead them over the edge.

'After you've lived in Enriquez's marvellous brain for the time it takes to read THE DANGERS OF SMOKING IN BED, the known world feels ratcheted a few degrees off-centre. Mariana Enriquez's stories are smoky, carnal and dazzling' - Lauren Groff, author of Fates and Furies


Review: 'A weird and wonderful exploration of contemporary horror - cities falling apart, society turning on itself, the loneliness of the internet age - stories from that compelling space between grimy, crushing reality and nightmare. But more than that: these stories are fun. Wild, triggering, sinister, button-pushing fun' - Lisa McInerney, author of The Glorious Heresies

'After you've lived in Enriquez's marvellous brain for the time it takes to read THE DANGERS OF SMOKING IN BED, the known world feels ratcheted a few degrees off-centre. Mariana Enriquez's stories are smoky, carnal and dazzling' - Lauren Groff, author of Fates and Furies
