A spine-tingling portrait of our obsession with technology, from the Man Booker International-shortlisted literary star
They look harmless enough: you could even call them cute. Not quite a phone, not quite a toy, not quite a robot, these are Kentukis. And it doesn’t take long for these apparently innocent devices to fall prey to our dark obsession with technology.
Little Eyes is a chilling portrait of our compulsively interconnected society. Schweblin irresistibly pulls the reader into an unsettling world of voyeurism, narcissism and the sinister reality that lies beneath the most seductive of masks.
Samanta Schweblin was chosen as one of the 22 best writers in Spanish under the age of 35 by Granta.
