There is a peculiar apartment building on 16 Argumosa Street, and behind its walls the neighbours live normal, peaceful lives... or so it seems. Highly visual scenes are strung together to reveal their common history: secret photographs, strange gargoyles who come to life, and a ravenous young woman plucking the feathers off of a goldfinch to eat every last bit of it, including the bones. Classic framed portraits of the apartments’ inhabitants dialogue powerfully with each other and the text of this charming, innovative novel that is a wonderful showcase for Sara Morante’s talents.
