Gingerbread: A Novel

Gingerbread: A Novel

Award-winning British novelist Helen Oyeyemi writes bewitching speculative fiction. Her most recent work is reminiscent of Hansel and Gretel, in which gingerbread plays a significant role. Perdita Lee and her mother Harriet appear to be your average British school girl and hard-working single mom. But all is not as it seems. In addition to their unique living situation, they make a very special gingerbread. Their fellow Londoners are less-than-enthused with the recipe, but it's a specialty from the country of Harriet's youth, an off-the-map land called Druhástrana. Harriet's long-lost childhood friend loved the gingerbread, and Perdita is intent on finding her. This imaginative novel follows Perdita's journey, and the audiobook narration is lovely.

Mr. Fox

Mr. Fox

Author:

From the publisher: "Fairy-tale romances end with a wedding, and the fairy tales don't get complicated. In this book, the celebrated writer Mr. Fox can't stop himself from killing off the heroines of his novels, and neither can his wife, Daphne. Their adventures twist the fairy tale into nine variations, exploding and teasing conventions of genre and romance, and each iteration explores the fears that come with accepting a lifelong bond."
