Bilingual book club will discuss Things We Lost in the Fire/Las cosas que perdimos en el fuego by Mariana Enriquez in English and Spanish.

Women that fight and protest against domestic violence that has turned viral. A student that peels off her nails and her eyelashes and another woman that helps her. Yeas of blackouts dictated by the government during which three friends are intoxicated and will be friends till the end. The famous murderer named Petiso Orejudo, of nine years of age. These form part of 11 stories by Mariana Enriquez that will stay with you until the end.

Las autodenominadas “mujeres ardientes,” que protestan contra una forma extrema de violencia doméstica que se ha vuelto viral; una estudiante que se arranca las uñas y las pestañas, y otra que intenta ayudarla; los años de apagones dictados por el gobierno durante los cuales se intoxican tres amigas que lo serán hasta que la muerte las separe; el famoso asesino en serie llamado Petiso Orejudo, que sólo tenía nueve años; hikikomori, magia negra, los celos, el desamor, supersticiones rurales, edificios abandonados o encantados. Esto forma parte de once historias de Mariana Enriquez que se pegaran en tu mente para siempre.
