Compulsive reading. Extraordinary descriptions and characters.
This is a short book of 8 short stories. If you are looking for something different to read, and like the unusual, try Angela Carter. Now unfortunately dead, she was a prolific writer with a direct and forceful style. There is no filler material in her books; every word counts. You need to suspend judgement as you meet the unbelievable characters, until suddenly you find yourself believing in them. Compulsive reading matter.
