A Little Luck, Claudia Pineiro ( paperback July 2023)
$13.00From the author of Elena Knows , finalist for the 2022 International Booker Prize20 years after a shocking accident, Mary Lohan returns to the Buenos Aires suburb she escaped in a fugue of guilt and isolation. She is not the sameâ€”not her name or voice, not even the color of her eyes. The neighborhood looks different too, but sheâ€™s still the same woman and itâ€™s still the same place, and as the past erupts into view, they slowly collide.Â A Little Luck is the story about the debilitating weight of lies, the messy line between bravery and cowardice, and the tragedies, big and small, that can ripple out from a single decisive event.
In a place she had determined to forget forever, both anticipated encounters and unanticipated revelations show her, and us, that sometimes life is neither fate nor chance: perhaps itâ€™s nothing more than a little luck.
