Content

These contemporary tales are drenched in Cornish folklore, and range from the charming to the downright unsettling. Most of the stories are wonderfully dark and incredibly original. Wood has a gift for evoking the landscapes of Cornwall – especially the windswept coasts and villages. For a debut collection of stories, this is rather masterful. If you’re a fan of Panos Karnezis or Karen Russell, these stories will be right up your street. They skillfully blend the fantastic with gritty realism. Looking forward to reading more from Lucy Wood.
