‘Auction’ by María Fernanda Ampuero, translated by Frances Riddle

I read to be knocked sideways, to be prodded and pricked. To feel grit under the skin. I don’t read for comfort or reassurance. This story, this collection flayed me raw. 

First published in English by Words Without Borders and available to read here. Collected in Cockfight, Feminist Press/Influx, 2020
