by Marina Warner - £8.99 Salt Publishing (2015)
paperback ISBN 13: 9781784630386 | ISBN 10: 1784630381
A long-awaited new collection of Marina Warner’s short stories.
Like her award-winning novels, Marina Warner's stories conjure up mysteries and wonders in a physical world, treading a delicate, magical line between the natural and the supernatural, between openness and fear.
"Marina Warner is our doyenne of fairy stories."
"Warner’s short stories, like those of AS Byatt, occupy a rich and delicate terrain between the fairytale and the real, the academic and the observed. Murderers I Have Known contains nine stories .... spun in a glittering web that traps ideas on innocence and evil in the physical world for our inspection. Flesh is manipulated, deceived, tortured and massacred, yet the intellectual poise of Warner’s prose makes it not only bearable but highly enjoyable."
