The Serial Killer Served Pound Cake & Other Sufficiently Slanted Tales
Whittingham's folk tales take place in a seemingly normal realm, but quickly grow strange. Like a good campfire story, her brand of storytelling jolts you out of that comfortable state and keeps you guessing about where that sound came from or who is behind that tree. From a reluctant Snow White making a way for herself in modern day New England to a dying woman who has an interesting take on motherly duties, the characters are both familiar and other worldly, ordinary and extraordinary. Unlike more traditional fairy tales, distinguishing the villains and the heroes in these slanted stories may be difficult.
