Synopsis

'Like Angela Carter, she is relentlessly inventive' Sunday Times

Award-winning short stories by the Bailey's Prize longlisted author of The Lonely Hearts Hotel



A cherub breaks all the rules when he spends one night with a girl on earth.

Snow White and Rose Red forge a unique way to survive the Paris occupation.

A soldier is brought back to life by a toymaker, but he's not grateful.

And a child begins the story of a Gypsy and a bear, who have to finish it themselves.



These are old stories, but not as you know them. These are set not in the forests of Europe or fantasy worlds, but on the battlefields of World War Two and the wilderness of downtown Montreal.



With her blazing imagination, irreverent humour and arresting prose, Heather O'Neill twists them anew: more magical for their realism, more profound for their darkness; captivating, witty and wicked.
