Book reviews - AFTER DARK AND OTHER STORIES

AFTER DARK AND OTHER STORIES


Author: Wilkie Collins

This collection of short stories is a subconscious exploration of the feminine archetype through fiction. Originally inspired by dreams, Eating Batteries touches on everyday themes of travel, motherhood, addiction, friendship, and marriage. Each story is a journey that expresses the insidious suffering and joy that make us all human. Consequently, the characters are both strange and familiar; the stories both resonant and disturbing. Like our dreams, these stories are unpredictable. You'll never know what's coming next.

In a daring blend of genres including comedy, realism, horror, fantasy, and dystopia, Griner and Collins just may have started a genre of their own.
