Such Small Hands
Such Small Hands
Andrés Barba

Translated by Lisa Dillman


Translated by Lisa Dillman; afterword by Edmund White

Shirley Jackson meets The Virgin Suicides in a masterwork from the Spanish writer at the peak of his powers.

Life changes at the orphanage the day seven-year-old Marina shows up. She is different from the other girls: at once an outcast and object of fascination. As Marina struggles to find her place, she invents a game whose rules are dictated by a haunting violence. Written in hypnotic, lyrical prose, alternating between Marina's perspective and the choral we of the other girls, Such Small Hands evokes the pain of loss and the hunger for acceptance.
