A young woman named Amanda lies dying in a rural hospital clinic; a boy named David sits beside her. She's not his mother, and he's not her child, yet together they tell a haunting story of broken souls, toxins, and the power and desperation of family. A finalist for the Mario Vargas Llosa Prize and the Man Booker International Prize, and the winner of the Tigre Juan Prize, Fever Dream is a nightmare come to life, a ghost story for the real world, and a love story, in which Samanta Schweblin creates an aura of psychological menace and otherworldly reality.
