Tender Morsels
Margo Lanagan

In her inspired re-working of the fairy-tale Snow White and Rose Red Margo Lanagan has created characters that are vivid, passionate, flawed and fiercely devoted to their hearts' desires, whether these desires are good or evil. It is the story of two worlds - one real, one magical - and how, despite the safe haven her magical world offers to those who have suffered, her characters can never turn their backs on the real world, with all its beauty and brutality. 

Tender Morsels is an astonishing novel, fraught with the tension between love and horror, violence and tenderness, despair and hope.
