bookshelves: fairytales, magical-realism, short-stories

Kirsty Logan's fairytales are at the same time familiar and also completely raw and new. Some familiar stories are told through the opposite perspective. Some new stories are familiar in the ways that emotions can only ever be.
The style reminds me a bit of Francesca Lia Block's Rose and the Beast, though Logan's fairytales are much more relatable. They feel like they could be real, even though the reader knows that the threshold is opaque.

I recommend this collection to those who want a fairytale that ends in unexpected ways.
