An award-winning collection of Gothic and uncanny stories from one of Europe’s most celebrated contemporary writers of short fiction. In Nona’s Room 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’s stories are suffused with the chilling tones of Angela Carter’s The Bloody Chamber and the psychological intensity of Paula Hawkins’s The Girl on the Train.
