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.
