In Twisting Tales, Clare Le May gives us a collection of gems that sparkle. But these tales are unsafe, taking us from the everyday into the realms of fantasy where they weave a disconcerting magic. They are deceptive - compact and economical, they nevertheless conjure worlds of many layers, in a voice that echoes with poetic resonance. Unusual things happen: shoes talk, young and old take flight in unexpected ways, the ultimate disguise is possible, but the hunter becomes the hunted.

    Twisting Tales Clare Le May’s Twisting Tales take us on a series of quirky, unexpected and unpredictable adventures. Always imaginative and by turns, humorous, fanciful, event violent, they share a common thread of wanting to escape, to fly the everyday world. Personal favourites include Aunt Sadie’s Shoes, where each pair of footwear, tucked away in a wardrobe, displays and transmits its own individual personality, and the poignant Reflections, where your heart yearns for the lovelorn Maureen. Le May’s inventive tales draw us into the minds of her many and various characters, exploring and revealing fragments of their lives.
