SYNOPSIS:  “The fifteen stories of Darkscapes, Anne-Sylvie Salzman’s new collection in English, superbly translated from the French by William Charlton, explore the horror in life, the beauty in strangeness. Despite the diverse settings of Salzman’s stories, their inhabitants share an affinity with the unusual, the dislocated and the other.

Hikers in the Scottish Highlands, a working-girl in Tokyo, boy scouts on a country adventure, drifting students, prowling beasts, makers of glass eyes, inhabit the farthest reaches of the imagination – be it the dying gleam of a lingering dusk, cannibalism in a Parisian park, or the tremor of a snipe’s feathers. Salzman/Charlton’s prose, precise and subtle, leads readers willingly into the heart of darkness.”
