The Things We Lost in the Fire, written by Mariana Enriquez, is an anthology of stories set in modern Argentina.

Darkness is a recurring theme in each of the stories. Utilizing beautiful language, Enriquez depicts Argentina’s history through the lives of her characters. Each character reflects a societal reality that most Argentinians find themselves in–poor, desperate, trapped. Through these characters and their stories, Enriquez illustrates how history can shape a society and how important it is that we are aware of it.

The Things We Lost in the Fire is a vivid and visceral book. Each of the stories reminds us that the ghost of the past will always linger.
