Little Eyes is a literary fiction book by author Samanta Schweblin, Megan McDowell.
The novel features a vision of our interconnected present, of the collision of horror and humanity, from a master of creepy stories.
They broke into homes in Hong Kong, shops in Vancouver, streets in Sierra Leone, town squares in Oaxaca, schools in Tel Aviv, bedrooms in Indiana. They are everywhere. They are here. They are us. They are not pets, ghosts or robots. They were real people, but how could someone living in Berlin be free to walk around in someone’s living room in Sydney? How can someone in Bangkok have breakfast with your child in Buenos Aires without you knowing? When these people are completely anonymous, unknown, impossible to find.
The characters in Samanta Schweblin’s brilliant new novel, Small Eyes, reveal the beauty of connection between distant souls. They also expose the bad side of our increasingly interconnected world. Trusting strangers can lead to unexpected love, playful encounters, and magical adventures. What if it could also pave the way for unimaginable horror? The story has been and is happening; it’s familiar and disturbing because it’s our present and we’re living with it, we just don’t know about it yet. In this prophetic tale, Schweblin creates a dark and complicated world that is somehow so sensitive, so recognisable that once entered, no one can leave.
