Kafka, Orwell, Perrault, and fabulous feminism – all for 25¢!

I read this in translation (my choices being limited) but I would really like to get a hold of the original French version because there were definitely some interesting choices (including the title: “Truismes” to “Pig Tales”) made by the translator which I found not always in keeping with the tone she’d taken. That said, this would not have been an easy job!Image

Pig Tales by Marie Darrieussecq, Tr. Linda Coverdale

A gossipy first-person cut through with moments of stunning poetry and utter depravity; this absurdist fairytale tells the story of one woman’s startling metamorphosis.

25 out of 25 cents!
