Product description

Review

'Barba submberges the reader in a terrifying but irresistible reality... This is a chilling account of what can happen in the secret spaces of a young child's imagination' -- --New Statesman

'There is something of Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring, a childhood both impossible and endless, not solely within the parameters of this story... Barba's Chekhov-like precision to emotion, a weightless peering into the minutiae of feeling, shines clearly in his works... This particular novel, however, contains a delicacy in register á part towards behavioural digression, a voice that stretches and pulls into the source of the lusus naturae, a discordance which palpates in the self-consciousness of our need to love and be loved' -- --Yelena Moscovich, 3AM Magazine

'Rarely does a book come that only captures perceptual reality with such vigorous insight, but also gives a terrifying spin. Such Small Hands by Spanish writer, Andrés Barba, does just that... It is a slim sinister novella, but packs a lot more ferocious intensity than books double its size' -- Wales Arts Review

'Such Small Hands is a book of layered and intricate beauty, a chasm-like narrative of trauma that keeps deepening and darkening as I reflect on it. It is tender and heart-tearing, sinister and compassionate. It is also one of the most meticulous, vivid accounts of childhood I have ever read' -- Megan Hunter

'Such Small Hands [...] is full of magic, malice and troubling enchantment' --Colin Barrett
