Take a disorienting dive into language, meaning and identity with this new collection of experimental narratives by the author of the fantastic Vertigo.
With bold vision and glittering prose Carter brings us her own reteling of classic fables such as Bluebeard and Little Red Ridinghood. Simply captivating! With roaring sensuality we are carted straight to the dark mythic heart of these tales, made all the more beautiful by Carter's care and craft. It's not wonder she has gone on to inspire such authors as Emma Donaghue and Sarah Waters (go check them out as well!). Put on your warmest cloak, find a quiet wood, and enjoy.
This debut collection of short fictions and narratives is so witty, raw and insightful that you'll read it again and again!
