Earlier this morning, Isobelle posted some exciting news on her Facebook wall, about an upcoming anthology collected by Isobelle Carmody and Nan Mc Nab - where authors take classic fairytales and put their own spin on them.
Characters transgress, they yearn, they hunger, they love, they hate, and, sometimes, they kill. None of the resulting tales belong in a nursery: these are provocative stories of enchantment, jealousy and deception, as well as courage, daring and passion. Each story is a gift to savour.The Wilful Eye will be published by Allen & Unwin in April 2011! Exciting news! The full-sized version of the beautiful cover can be downloaded here. Volume One contains stories by Rosie Borella, Isobelle Carmody, Richard Harland, Margo Lanagan, Margaret Mahy, and Martine Murray.
