Winner of the Scott PrizeWinner of the 2015 Polari First Book PrizeWinner of the Saboteur Award for Best Short Story CollectionThe Herald: Book of the Year 2014Shortlisted for the 2014 Green Carnation PrizeTwenty tales of lust and loss. These stories feature clockwork hearts, lascivious queens, paper men, island circuses, and a flooded world. On the island of Skye, an antlered girl and a tiger-tailed boy resolve never to be friends - but can they resist their unique connection? In an alternative 19th-century Paris, a love triangle emerges between a man, a woman, and a coin-operated boy. A teenager deals with his sister's death by escaping from their tiny Scottish island - but will she let him leave? In 1920s New Orleans, a young girl comes of age in her mother's brothel. Some of these stories are radical retellings of classic tales, some are modern-day fables, but all explore substitutions for love.

Promotional Information

A thrilling walk through a brilliant mind, full of unexpected connections and utterly original leaps across voice, structure, genre. Truly anarchic artistically but always true emotionally, and delivered with the skill of a virtuoso. Read it in one sitting for the thrill then read it again for the smarts. -- Bidisha Kirsty Logan is an exquisite writer who possesses the uncanny ability to make even the most mundane detail beautifully compelling. If you want to be captivated, if you want to be utterly taken, reach for this book and don't let go. -- Roxane Gay (With the Rental Heart Kirsty Logan has formed) a hybrid of steam punk, retro romanticism and queer fiction - a Frankensteinian form that has a life of its own. -- Ewan Morrison
