Debut novel

The Anthill is an intoxicating literary ghost story about a young woman returning home to seek redemption.

Lina has come home to the country of her childhood. Sent away from Colombia to England after her mother's death 20 years before, she's searching for the one person who can tell her about their shared past. She's never forgotten Matty, her childhood friend and protector, who now runs The Anthill, a day-care refuge for the street kids of Medellín. Lina begins volunteering there, but her reunion with Matty is not what she hoped for. Medellín is entering a new era, and Matty appears to have taken the city's attempts to redefine itself post-conflict to heart. He has no interest in discussing the past and his enigmatic behaviour puts Lina on guard. And then, strange happenings start taking place at The Anthill: violent scratches appear on the inside of the supply closet door, kids make disturbing crayon drawings and insist they've seen a small boy with pointy teeth roaming around the yard. Could Lina have brought these disturbances with her? Is this a vision of the boy she once knew, or something more sinister? And what will her search for atonement cost Matty?

'The Anthill foxes the boundaries between the political and personal in startling and tender ways. It's a novel that laughs through a mouthful of blood, which scares and touches, dazzles and compels.'
Sharlene Teo, author of Ponti

'The Anthill is by turns profound and freewheeling, powerful and funny.'
Claire Adam, author of Golden Child

'Vivid and at times surreal, this assured novel cements Pachico's reputation as a gifted writer to watch.'
