Daydreams of Angels

(2015)
A collection of stories by

 
 
Original and bewitching rewrites of children's stories and fairytales set around World War Two, by the Women's Prize-shortlisted author

A cherub breaks all the rules when he spends one night with a girl on earth.
Snow White and Rose Red forge a unique way to survive the Paris occupation.
A soldier is brought back to life by a toymaker, but he's not grateful.
And a child begins the story of a Gypsy and a bear, who have to finish it themselves.

These are old stories, but not as you know them. These are set not in the forests of Europe or fantasy worlds, but on the battlefields of World War Two and the wilderness of downtown Montreal.

With her blazing imagination, irreverent humour and arresting prose, Heather O'Neill twists them anew: more magical for their realism, more profound for their darkness; captivating, witty and wicked.
