The Wicked Wood(2011)
(The second book in the Tales from the Tower series)
An anthology of stories edited by Isobelle Carmody and Nan McNab
Six of the world's most exciting and best - loved writers have chosen six fairy tales as inspiration for their own stories in this second volume of Tales from the Tower. In this companion to The Wilful Eye, six much - loved writers - Catherine Bateson, Victor Kelleher, Cate Kennedy, Maureen McCarthy, Nan McNab and Kate Thompson - give fresh voice to age - old stories of abandonment, desire and entrapment.Praise for Volume One: The writers in The Wilful Eye imbue all of their characters, including the villains, with a deep sense of psychological realism, producing often tender, engaging, and insightful results. Unnamed soldiers and hideous beasts are given a voice, even if that voice is at times unsettling, and wolves are still wolves, however they disguise themselves. Australian Book Review sublime, with each tale landing a punch squarely between the old and the new, bewitching and terrifying.
