“Love will eat your heart like an apple…”
So begins a strange quest in “For Love of Three Oranges,” a dark fable from Spain about the sweetness and pain of living in the world. Also a frog prince, an ogre and an alchemist.
“Long ago, far away” brings together ten tales of murder, betrayal, bad luck and other disappointments.
Brimming with energy and inventiveness, these richly imagined stories are at turns hilarious, at turns unsettling, often playful, always captivating and never quite what you’re expecting.
Also in this collection: a chilling campfire tale, a murder mystery, a disastrous courtship between a frog and a mouse, a nightmare with no end, unrequited loves, regrettable moments and dubious intentions.
