Yellow Cake

Yellow Cake

by Margo Lanagan

Paperback / softback Publication Date: 06/06/2013

 
Yellow Cake brings together another ten short stories from this extraordinarily talented writer - each of them fiercely original and quietly heartbreaking.

Ranging from fantasy and fairy tale to horror and stark reality, what pervades these stories is the sense of humanity. The people of Lanagan's worlds face trials, temptations and degradations. They swoon and suffer and even kill for love. In a dangerous world, they seek the solace and strength that comes from family and belonging.

These are stories to be savoured slowly and pondered deeply because they cut to the very heart of who we are.
