Comments & Further Information

This is a first printing (with a full 1 to 10 number sequence) of the B format (130 x 198 mm) paperback published by David Frickling.  The title was originally published in Australia in 2011 by Allen and Unwin.  As new.  Unread.

A new collection of evocative, moving and richly imagined stories.

SYNOPSIS:   “Well it’s never a good idea to get on the wrong side of a fascinator, is it?  For he’s unlikely just to retire and lick his wounds…

From the tower of Rapunzel’s imprisonment to the devastation of a burned-out world, from the lonely life of the river Styx ferryman to the early-morning sightings of a city milkman, Margo Lanagan’s fourth collection of short stories is questioning, provocative, and utterly enthralling.

The stories are:  The Point of Roses;  The Golden Shroud;  A Fine Magic;  An Honest Day’s Work;  Into the Clouds on High;  Night of the Firstlings; Ferryman;  Heads;  Living Curiosities;  Eyelids of the Dawn.”
