Description

What does it mean to be at home? Are we ever truly alone in our houses? In "Twisted", a woman loses her best friend's daughter while an old acquaintance is on trial for murder; "Nectar and Nickle" introduces readers to a young girl who digs up the corpse of the family cat and comforts herself with macabre fairy tales. She meets a boy in the woods and turns him into part of her game. In "Garden Bed" secrets are buried in the garden plot with the best of intentions, but they are dug up by a fox who watches and sees everything. Haunted bodies, haunted houses, and haunted relationships colour this collection to show us that our homes are not our own. We are only guests.
