Consequences, and the Growth of Love
This lovely little tome dropped through my letter box this morning. An adult fable, eighty-eight pages in total - I devoured it in an hour - it's even beautifully illustrated with Victorianesque silhouettes. What more could you ask for? And Mr Kaufman does have a wonderful sense of humour, at times as liquorice-black as the novella's end-pages.
Dark, beautiful, sentimental.
If you hadn't already guessed, I really enjoyed this novella.
