'Now I am a mother and a married woman, but not long ago I led a life of crime': so Bianca begins her tale of growing up the hard way in Rome in A Little Lumpen Novelita.
Orphaned overnight as a teenager - 'our parents died in a car crash on their first vacation without us' - she drops out of school, gets a crappy job, sees a terrible brightness at night, and drifts into bad company. Her little brother brings home two petty criminals who need a place to stay. As the four of them share the family apartment and plot a strange crime, Bianca learns she can drift lower . . .
Electric and tense with foreboding, with its jagged, propulsive short chapters beautifully translated by Natasha Wimmer, A Little Lumpen Novelita - one of the last novels Roberto BolaĂ±o published - delivers a surprising, fractured fairy tale of taking control of one's fate.
From the moment we are born, we accept that a day will come when our lives must end. That is not the case for 23 year old Ren Croswell. Ren died a few short months before his 24th birthday and he's been stuck in the Colgrove cemetery for the past five years. He's made some friends and it's not all that bad, but there is one thing that won't settle in his restless soul; he isn't supposed to be dead. 23 year old Hannah Benoit moved to Colgrove, Kentucky in hopes of escaping her past. One can only handle being 'the girl who sees ghosts' for so long. This new town will give her a clean slate and a fresh start, but nothing can prepare her for what she's about to find. On Halloween, the one day of the year when Ren can walk among the living, everything will change. Death promised him it would be different this year, but there's no possible way Ren could've known the true reason for his sudden and mistaken demise. Hannah will discover that her blessing of a curse was given to her for a reason, and they will both find what they've been looking for this entire time; the truth, and each other. You won't see it coming.
When a stranger follows and other short stories takes readers on a journey into another world where evil lurks in the shadows and devils come in many disguises. Pour the cocoa, grab the blanket and prepare to venture into a terrifying world of the unknown.
