Samanta Schweblin Synopses: Fever Dream is a standalone novel. A young woman named Amanda lies dying in a rural hospital. A boy named David sits next to her. She’s not his mother. He’s not her child. Together, they tell a haunting story of broken souls, toxins, and the power and desperation of family.

Little Eyes is a standalone title by Samanta Schweblin. They’ve infiltrated homes in Hong Kong, shops in Vancouver, the streets of Sierra Leone, town squares in Oaxaca, schools in Tel Aviv, bedrooms in Indiana. They’re everywhere. They’re here. They’re us. They’re not pets, or ghosts, or 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 your knowing? Especially when these people are completely anonymous, unknown, unfindable.
