Samanta Schweblin was born in 1978, in Buenos Aires. She published her first book of stories in 2002. Schweblin has studied film and has often been compared to the director David Lynch. Her first novel, Fever Dream, has been translated to many languages and is published in Finnish this spring. It tells the eerie story of a woman who has travelled to the countryside, where things aren’t as they seem.
