Book Review: Little Black Book of Stories
Little Black Book of Stories by A.S. Byatt
My rating: 1 of 5 stars
The short story “The Thing in the Wood” was stunning. It begins with the opening line, “There were once two little girls who saw, or believed they saw, a thing in the forest,” Byatt knows how to begin a story, and it involves confronting the unconscious which has come to life as a monster. Overall, unfortunately, I could have done without reading this book.
