Little Eyes : LONGLISTED FOR THE BOOKER INTERNATIONAL PRIZE, 2020, Hardback Book

Little Eyes : LONGLISTED FOR THE BOOKER INTERNATIONAL PRIZE, 2020 Hardback

Description

A visionary novel about our interconnected world, about the collision of horror and humanity, from the Man Booker-shortlisted master of the spine-tingling tale'She has a gift for fiction that is pure, original, revelatory.' El PaisThey've infiltrated homes in Hong Kong, shops in Vancouver, the streets of Sierra Leone, town squares of Oaxaca, schools in Tel Aviv, bedrooms in Indiana. They're not pets, nor ghosts, nor robots. They're real people, but how can a person living in Berlin walk freely through the living room of someone in Sydney?

How can someone in Bangkok have breakfast with your children in Buenos Aires, without you knowing?

Especially when these people are completely anonymous, unknown, untraceable. The characters in Samanta Schweblin's wildly imaginative new novel, Little Eyes, reveal the beauty of connection between far-flung souls - but they also expose the ugly truth of our increasingly linked world.

Trusting strangers can lead to unexpected love, playful encounters and marvellous adventures, but what if it can also pave the way for unimaginable terror?

Schweblin has created a dark and complex world that is both familiar but also strangely unsettling, because it's our present and we're living it - we just don't know it yet.
