Description

From cartoons that draw their creator into another world, and demonic paintings that exert a sinister influence on our own world to fairy tales that express the secret losses and anxieties of their tellers...These are the elements that Steven Millhauser employs with brilliant, often disquieting, effect in "Little Kingdoms". The three novellas range from an elaborate alternate universe constructed by a gentle eccentric to a gothic tale of nightmarish jealousy. Exuberantly inventive, and as mysterious as dreams, "Little Kingdoms" will delight, mesmerise, and transport anyone who reads them.show more
