“The presiding spirit of [this] collection is Ovid singing of souls transformed to bodies new and strange. . . . read[s] like fragments of Angela Carter fairy tales.” 

— Literary Review of Canada

 

“A collection of fairy tales for grown-ups. Maria Mutch’s short stories contain a touch of whimsical—but undeniably dark—magic. Think more Grimm folklore than Disney Technicolor. . . . the perfect precursor to drifting into dreamworld.”

—   Canadian Living

 

“Highly imaginative. . . . quizzical and melancholy . . . eerily au courant.”

Quill & Quire
