Diamela Eltit

No one can be closer to another than a mother to her unborn child. No one, that is, except unborn twins jostling for space in the cuarro. In this concise and inventive novel, a twin brother and sister vie for attention from the reader much as they competed for room before their birth.

Their prenatal intimacy and jealousy interlace until they can hardly recognize who is who.

From the moment of their births, everything changes. The lives of the family members begin to unwind as they are each consumed by illness, obsession, and insanity. The inevitable and violent dissolution of the family becomes a metaphor in which Diamela Cuaro explores the social crises in Chile during the military dictatorship of General Cesare Augusto Pinochet.
