Like those of Kafka, Poe, Leonora Carrington, or Shirley Jackson, Amparo Dvilas stories are terrifying, mesmerizing, and expertly crafted--youll finish each one gasping for air. With acute psychological insight, Dvila follows her characters to the limits of desire, paranoia, insomnia, and fear. She is a writer obsessed with obsession, who makes nightmares come to life through the everyday: loneliness sinks in easily like a razor-sharp knife, some sort of evil lurks in every shadow, delusion takes the form of strange and very real creatures. After reading The Houseguest--Dvilas debut collection in English--youll wonder how this secret was kept for so long.
