Publisher's Summary

A young woman named Amanda lies dying in a rural hospital clinic. A boy named David sits beside her. She's not his mother. He's not her child. Together they tell a haunting story of broken souls, toxins, and the power and desperation of family.
Fever Dream is a nightmare come to life, a ghost story for the real world, a love story and a cautionary tale. One of the freshest new voices to come out of the Spanish language and translated into English for the first time, Samanta Schweblin creates an aura of strange psychological menace and otherworldly reality in this absorbing, unsettling, taut novel.

Critic Reviews

"A wonderful nightmare of a book: tender and frightening, disturbing but compassionate. Fever Dream is a triumph of Schweblin's outlandish imagination." (Juan Gábriel Vasquez, author of The Sound of Things Falling and Reputations)

An amazing book

I think I enjoyed the book for all the reasons that other reviewers didn’t. It resists resolution, it perturbs and frustrates, and allows the reader to bask in uncertainty even as it articulates a very clear message about environmental disasters and their very particular and personal impacts. The translation is very good, I’ve read the book in both Spanish and English and the narrator does a great job of conveying the narrative.

If you need resolution you won't find it.

This book defys description, I hate a book where when it is over everyone who reads it will have a different idea about what happened. This book I guess was not for me, but I was interested in the fact that it was translated and the author is Argentinian. I suppose there could be cultural differences as to why I don't understand it. I'm not really a fan of magical realism, but I do like stretching my mind by reading books written in other countries in other languages.
