Woodworm by Layla Martinez

Staff Pick

I finished this book in a night! I couldn't stop turning the pages as the story of a grandmother and granddaughter unfurled into something dark, skittering, and unresolved. In the vein of Fernanda Melchor and Mariana Enriquez, this is a modern horror story steeped in old school tradition. It builds fear out of familiar social and cultural norms and out of what lurks between assumptions and beneath silence; the worst horrors lie in what lives long past someone's death. Anyone dipping their toe into Latin Gothic horror should snatch up this beautiful Two Lines Press book immediately.
