"Nervous System's dreamy lull belies the slow-motion horror of its plot. . . . I still feel blurrily half-drowned in Meruane's eerie, swirling poetics."--Sarah Manguso"With black humor and hypnotic, singular prose, in Nervous System Lina Meruane subverts the conventions that dominate discussions about literature and illness. . . . With its porous structure, dendritic like our own nervous system, this novel helps us read our own nervous, contemporary moment."--Alia Trabucco Zerán "Nervous System is fast, uncompromising and shimmering with intelligence."--Sarah Moss
