A Feast of Sorrows: Stories by Angela Slatter

Tradepaperback – Prime Books – Oct2016 – 303 pages

Twelve of the author’s finest, darkest fairy tales, along with two new novellas. Stories peopled by women and girls—fearless, frightened, brave, bold, frail, and fantastical—who take the paths less traveled by, accept (and offer) poisoned apples, and embrace transformation in all its forms. Reminiscent of Angela Carter at her best, Slatter’s work is both timeless and fresh: fascinating new reflections from the enchanted mirrors of fairy tales and folklore. 303 pages.
