The rootless feeling that overshadows those choosing to build a life away from their place of birth is at the centre of The Delivery. In this intimate and profound look at the quotidian, something materialises in the house of the narrator that forces her to confront the ghosts of what she thinks she left behind. When the peace she has laboriously constructed slips through her fingers, she realises that despite believing she can go without the relationships and connections of her past, they still exist in the corners of her life.

The Delivery; Margarita García Robayo; translated by Megan McDowell
