Eucalyptus House

Luciano Lamberti

NOVEL. PENGUIN RANDOM HOUSE, 2017. 192 PAGES.

A doctor gets lost on the trail back to his home town. A young president is visited by a spirit who promises to reveal the secret of success. A man dies repeatedly only to be revived over and over again. Skaters in search of the perfect surface meet creatures from another species. A contemporary artist is transformed into an animal.   

In elegant, skilful, rapid prose, Lamberti emphasizes the subtle, the unsaid and the invisible. 

“With morbid irony, Lamberti delves into the nightmares endemic to an inhospitable pampas, making the saying ‘small town, big hell’ literal. His characters slip almost unknowingly into cruelty, madness and frustrated delirium. These are earth-shaking tales of terror that also show what terror can do to minds mired in boredom, gossip, prejudice and routine.”
