General Note:
"Originally published, in Spanish and in a somewhat different form, as Pájaros en la boca by Random House Mondadori in 2010."-- title page verso.
"From the author of Fever Dream... Dark and dangerous tales... The brilliant stories in Mouthful of Birds burrow their way into your psyche and don't let go. Samanta Schweblin haunts and mesmerizes in this extraordinary collection featuring women on the edge, men turned upside down, the natural world at odds with reality. We think life is one way, but often, it's not -- our expectations for how people act, love, fear can all be upended. Each character in Mouthful of Birds must contend with the unexpected, whether a family coming apart at the seams or a child transforming or a ghostly hellscape or a murder. Schewblin's stories have the feel of a sleepless night, where every shadow and bump in the dark takes on huge implications, leaving your pulse racing, and where the line between the real and the strange blurs."-- book jacket.
Translated from the Spanish.
