In ‘Feebleminded’, Harwicz drags us to the most uncomfortable and fascinating aspects of love, need and dependency, by analysing the dynamics between a mother and her adult daughter, both searching through their own past and present as they try to give meaning to their lives and relationship. Written in a wild stream of consciousness narration, and embedded in a current trend of elusive violence so ingrained in contemporary Latin American fiction, we follow the characters on a roller coaster ride of extreme emotions and critical self-examinations where everything – from a childhood without answers, to a desolate loveless present – has been buried.
