Sulfide

Fernanda García Lao

NOVEL, PLANETA, 2022. 179 PAGES.

Tormented by the suicidal delirium of a mother obsessed with the lives of the saints and the silent apathy of a proctologist father, the protagonist of Sulfide is obsessed with achieving a degree of normality: she marries and divorces young, marries again and moves to a seemingly quiet neighbourhood. However, on the other side of the street there is a cemetery and when the lives of the others (the dead) get tangled up with hers she sets out on a one-way journey into what Lovecraft called the mountains of madness.
A story of ghosts and terror, Sulfide is both a lucid exploration of mental fragility and a biting criticism of social conventions and the perverse hypocrisy of good manners, written with the distinctive poetic intensity and untrammelled imagination that make Fernanda García Lao one of the most original and irreverent writers in contemporary Latin American literature.

‘In this dark, nightmarish atmosphere, where uncertainty is the only guarantee, the insane plot hints at another equally absurd world beyond the pages, as though literature were also prophecy.'
