  1. This story is pretty genius! So imaginative and the imagery is constantly beautiful, very smart narrative with lots of equally brilliant stories tucked inside. It makes you think about how love is violently altered and commodified by our culture. I'm so happy to hear it read, thanks a lot. A special talent indeed.

  2. Loved this and rushed off to buy your book! Thank you so much for the lovely reading. I need your help with a bookish matter! My five year old son is currently obsessed with 'Franklin and Luna and the Book of Fairy Tales' but there is one fairytale character that we can't name… Please share who the knight in the fortress is! Will I kick myself for not knowing?

  3. This story is one of my favourites in your collection so listening to this made for a great break in weekend chores! The Bluebeard-esque room of 'failed love' is deliciously horrible

  4. Hello Jen can you please do a recommendation video for books about loneliness? That might contain some characters who feel lonely or lost in their lives, I trust your taste the most and I'd really appreciate it if you suggest me some even in comments.

  5. I’d just finished reading this story yesterday – hearing it read aloud, the way it’s intonated and what’s emphasised, really adds a whole new meaning to it and I’m so here for it

  6. Captivating and thought-provoking! I don't normally like stort stories neither do I like horror and/or very bizarre narratives …and this was both… but in a whole different and unique way! It was weird enough to stand out but clever enough to make sense! All the extra layers…the way tales and myths were interwoven into the story…the thoughts and comments about love, life and relationships…not to mention the nice pacing and the great sense of humour … Just brilliant!Thank you for sharing,Jen!
