    Short stories from an unholy marriage of Angela Carter, Sheila Heti, and H. P. Lovecraft.
    Dolls, sewing machines, tinned foods, mirrors, malfunctioning bodies - by constantly reinventing ways to engage with her obsessions and motifs, Camilla Grudova has built a universe that's highly imaginative, incredibly original, and absolutely discomfiting. The stories in The Doll's Alphabet are simultaneously childlike and naive, grotesque and very dark.

    This collection consists of thirteen stories. The stories are set in the mythical town of Whilomville used by Stephen Crane for many of his best stories.  They appeared in Harper's New Monthly Magazine between 1899 and 1900.  The writing is crisp, the stories are poignant and funny (usually) and always tell us something about our quirky human nature.   - Summary by Phil chenevert

    When the body of the eccentric painter Sir Owen Cram is found on a deserted beach next to his easel, a murder enquiry is launched. It is clear that the injury which has killed him could not have been self-inflicted. Nor is the murder weapon anywhere to be found. But most mysterious of all, there is only one set of footprints in the sand leading up to the body, and these are Sir Owen's own. Even the scientists and police investigators are struggling to conceive how the murder has been committed. But the imaginative young poet Gale looks at all the evidence in a new light...in particular the presence of a red starfish next to the body.
