Nona’s Room, new horror stories in translation, featured in NYT and LARB


Nona's Room

In Nona's Room (Peter Owen Publishers, September 2017), the everyday fantasies of women slowly turn into nightmare, delusion, and paranoia. Newly available in English, this prize-winning collection of chilling stories from Spain’s Cristina Fernandez Cubas has caught major media attention. The New York Times calls it a “remarkable collection” in their roundup of horror books indebted to master of the genre Richard Matheson. The reviewer continues, “In these six elegant stories [Fernandez Cubas is] most interested in the ambiguities and periodic disturbances that plague the imagination, and reports on them with the appropriate sense of awe, even of dread.”

Nona’s Room was also mentioned by Los Angeles Review of Books in a feature article on Peter Owen’s World Series, a project that biannually releases three works of contemporary fiction in translation from a given country or region.
