Here, a husband and wife, unable to get their new baby to feed, hit upon a novel and disturbing solution . . ."Royal Jelly" is taken from the short story collection Kiss Kiss, which includes ten other devious and shocking stories, featuring the wife who pawns the mink coat from her lover with unexpected results; the priceless piece of furniture that is the subject of a deceitful bargain; a wronged woman taking revenge on her dead husband, and others.
