‘Birds in the Mouth’ by Samanta Schweblin, translated by Megan McDowell

Another teenage girl themed pick; Schweblin writes weird so well. And it’s not Sara’s fault that she wants to eat birds, she just… does.

First published in translation on pen.org, November 2011, and available to read online here. Collected in Mouthful of Birds, Oneworld, 2019
