Looking for some spooky stories to stay up late with this Halloween season? Your search has ended… enter Nona’s Room, an award-winning collection of Gothic and uncanny stories from one of Europe’s most celebrated contemporary writers of short fiction. These terror tales were written by Cristina Fernández Cubas (an author/journalist from Barcelona) and translated by Simon Deefholts and Kathryn Phillips-Miles.

Among the awards Nona’s Room has won are: Premio Nacional de Narrativa (2016), Premio de la Critica Española (2016), and Premio Dulce Chacón (2016). It was also Book of the Year 2015: La Vanguardia, El Cultural, Babelia and ABC.

High praise indeed! Head over to Amazon to read some excerpts and order your copy in paperback or on Kindle.

Synopsis:
In Nona’s Room (Peter Owen Publishers) the everyday fantasies of women slowly turn into nightmare, delusion, and paranoia. A young girl who is envious of the attention given to her sister has a brutal awakening. A young woman, facing eviction, misplaces her trust in an old lady who invites her into her home. A mature woman spends the night in a hotel in Madrid and falls into a time warp…

Cubas’ stories are suffused with the chilling tones of Angela Carter’s The Bloody Chamber and the psychological intensity of Paula Hawkins’ The Girl on the Train.
