Praise

Early Praise for THINGS WE LOST IN THE FIRE: 

“These stunning, incandescent stories… crackle with sophisticated weirdness, illuminating everyday activities against the underbelly of the macabre… Similar to Shirley Jackson and Jac Jemc, Enríquez is certain to dazzle and discomfit.”Booklist

“[S]taggering in its nuanced ability to throw readers off balance… rich descriptions of narcos, addicts, muggers, and transvestites quickly transport readers to an alien world… A rich and malcontent stew of stories about the everyday terrors that wait around each new corner.”Kirkus 

“Mariana Enriquez is a mesmerizing writer who demands to be read. Like Bolaño, she is interested matters of life and death, and her fiction hits with the force of a freight train. “The Dirty Kid” is one of the most memorable and brave stories I’ve read in years. It lingers in the mind for weeks, and redefined my sense of Buenos Aires, a city I love dearly.”—Dave Eggers

“These spookily clear-eyed, elementally intense stories are the business. I find myself no more able to defend myself from their advances than Enriquez’s funny, brutal, bruised characters are able to defend themselves from life as it’s lived.”—Helen Oyeyemi

“These stories unsettle; they disturb; they disquiet. Read them!”—Kelly Link

“When I read Mariana Enríquez’s stories, I forget where I am. I miss my subway stop. I hold my breath. Her fiction is that pulse-racingly superb, that electric and original. Mariana Enríquez is an essential voice in contemporary fiction, and The Things We Lost in the Fire will be a sensation.”—Laura van den Berg
