Reviews

  • "Deeply, deeply unsettling and brilliant collection of short stories. Some feature horror, nearly all feature dread and, in the manner of Shirley Jackson, all will burrow their way into your brain and not let go."

  • "Finely crafted feminist short stories, each one gripping and unnerving in equal measure… you won’t put it down"

    Sunday Telegraph
  • "Literary and menacing. Powerfully unsettling. A fascinating collection."

    Metro
  • "Logan observes modern anxieties and commonplace troubles and twists them into surreal new shapes...marvellously unnerving...her sharp wit is unmistakable."

    New Statesman
  • "Her poetic, supernatural prose has lace edges of sticky, violent terror...Logan masters the format indubitably, channelling the spirit of Angela Carter... these tales seem to perfectly suit the unsettling times in which we live. Luckily for us, in writing these terrifying tales Logan, like Margaret Atwood or George Orwell, turns the big light on."

    Herald
  • "Fans of Angela Carter and Shirley Jackson take note...Logan's prose shimmers with menace and her tightly wrought nightmares feel intensely real."

    i
  • "Frequently compared to Angela Carter for her luxuriant imagination and love of fairytales, Kirsty Logan shifts from the uncanny to the terrifying in her new collection of short stories. the book also works cumulatively, building up an impressive atmosphere of dread."

    Guardian
  • "A dark delight… It’s a well-paced, stylistically playful collection – and most importantly, deeply unsettling"
