Bookslinger Update: “Professor Helen C. Anderson”

The Bookslinger app has been updated with a new story!

9781566893473This week’s story comes from the collection of elegantly simple fairy tales where nonsense is as commonplace as violence from author Kate Bernheimer, published by Coffee House Press. Elegant and brutal, the stories in Kate Bernheimer’s latest collection occupy a heightened landscape, where the familiar cedes to the grotesque and nonsense just as often devolves into terror. These are fairy tales out of time, renewing classic stories we think we know, like one of Bernheimer’s girls, whose hands of steel turn to flowers, leaving her beautiful but alone.
