Little Eyes

Translated by Megan McDowell

About The Book

One of Huffington Post India's '50 Books to Look Forward to in 2020'

They look harmless enough: you could even call them cute. A cuddly panda, a brightly-coloured dragon, a miniature crow. They’re part of the latest craze exploding from Croatia to Norway to Brazil: they are 'Kentukis'.

Not quite a phone, not quite a toy, not quite a robot, Kentukis contain cameras which allow someone on the other side of the planet to access the most intimate moments of another person’s life. And it doesn’t take long for these apparently innocent devices to fall prey to our dark obsession with technology.

Reminiscent of the very best of Black Mirror, Little Eyes is a chilling portrait of our compulsively interconnected society. Schweblin irresistibly pulls the reader into an unsettling, unforgettable world of voyeurism, narcissism, and the sinister reality that lies beneath the most seductive of masks.
