Yellowcake

by Margo Lanagan

Hardback Publication Date: 14/05/2013

 
Yellowcake brings together ten short stories from the extraordinarily talented Margo Lanagan--each of them fiercely original and quietly heartbreaking. The stories range from fantasy and fairy tale to horror and stark reality, and yet what pervades 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 savored slowly and pondered deeply because they cut to the very heart of who we are.-Haunting, gorgeous, and sometimes painful, Lanagan's stories are unlike anything else in fantasy literature.- --Publishers Weekly, starred review -Lanagan unravels familiar myths and fairy tales, weaving them into unique, sharply resonant forms in this characteristically stunning collection.- --Kirkus, starred review
