Nona's Room

Rate this book
An award-winning collection of six uncanny and atonal stories from one of Europe's most celebrated contemporary writers of short fiction. Suffused with the chilling tones of Angela Carter's The Bloody Chamber and the psychological intensity of Paula Hawkins' The Girl on the Train, Cubas turns the everyday fantasies of her female characters into nightmare, delusion and paranoia.

A young girl who is envious of the attention given to her sister has a brutal awakening. A young woman, facing eviction, puts her trust in an old lady who invites her into her home. A mature woman spends the night in a hotel in Madrid and falls into a time warp ... Cristina Fernández Cubas takes us through a dark looking-glass into a world where things are never quite what they seem. Lurking in each of these six chilling and suspenseful short stories is a very unpleasant surprise. Nona's Room is the latest offering from one of Spain's finest contemporary writers.
