'A scorching examination of how being utterly dependent on someone - even someone you love - can make you a monster' Literary Hub, 13 Translated Books by Women You Need to ReadLucina, a young Chilean writer, has moved to New York to pursue an academic career.
While at a party one night, something that her doctors had long warned might happen finally occurs: her eyes haemorrhage.
Within minutes, blood floods her vision, reducing her sight to sketched outlines and tones of grey, rendering her all but blind.
As she begins to adjust to a very different life, those who love her begin to adjust to a very different woman - one who is angry, raw, funny, sinister, sexual and dizzyingly alive.
