FOXFIRE, WOLFSKIN by Sharon Blackie

by: Sharon Blackie

Written in the imaginative style of Angela Carter, this book of twelve short stories draws inspiration from European folklore and fairy tales, with a focus on the ability of women to transform themselves in seemingly impossible circumstances. Award-winning author of The Enchanted Life Sharon Blackie weaves modern themes with existing folklore to create an exquisite work that feels both new and familiar. Interspersed with a selection of evocative illustrations by Helen Nicholson, these short stories powerfully reimagine mythic women whilst exploring our relationship with the natural world and the wildness within.
