What wondrous and magical stories Cate O’Toole has woven in these dark, revisionist tales of Clementine, who comes powerfully and heartbreakingly alive under O’Toole’s ministrations. The brilliant format allows readers to choose how they move through the collection, and which narratives they want to privilege. Reminiscent of Angela Carter’s The Bloody Chamber, O’Toole creates such utterly genuine and believable (if sometimes scary!) characters and landscapes you’ll forget you are reading fiction. And you’ll never listen to “Oh, My Darling, Celmentine” in the same way after reading this book.

-Sheryl St. Germain, author of Navigating Disaster: Sixteen Essays of Love and a Poem of Despair
