Emma J. Lannie explores extraordinary moments within ordinary lives, that are evocative of fairy tale and myth. A magical collection of short fiction.
“Lannie explores the subtle dislocations that occur within relationships in a clear-eyed prose that is eloquent, graceful, and quiet. These tales occupy a landscape of emotional and physical impacts, of fallible characters longing for a connection but who find themselves at odds with the world, a world often sorrowful and darkly beautiful. Illuminating the fragility of human relationships, these are the sorts of stories we tell ourselves to survive. A truly remarkable first collection, and I can’t wait to see what she does next.” Ray Robinson
