Beauty and the Beast

In a Dark Wood by Sheldrake

'She cannot absolutely say that he is finned, or winged, or hoofed. And yet, she cannot absolutely say that he isn't.' A lovely combination of the surreal & the matter of fact marks this dreamlike version of 'The Beauty and the Beast'

Rough Diamond by Lyrstzha

'Stories are sleek and round on the tongue and in the mind, perfect circles of meaning, but truth is mostly far more unsatisfying and messy.' A novel retelling of 'The Beauty and the Beast'. Clever & charming. Highly recommended
