You know how people joke that 50 Shades would be creepy and gross if the dude was some ugly hick instead of a suit wearing businessman?
This is that story, and I'll never unsee it. It gets points for gorgeous packaging though.
A strange but wonderful little book!
I read this lovely little collection very slowly over the last month or so. It was really quite stunning! The genres she blends are done so well. It's poetry, it's fairy tale, but it also reads like fiction. And it's very dark! But the writing was beautiful. Not to mention the black pages with white writing! It just added so much more to the overall experience.

Part of the allure of this book seems to be the endpapers and white on black print in the HC. I read it as an ebook, so I was left with only the words. Told in poems and short prose sections, the story is of a woman living alone in a cabin in the woods to explore her art. While there, she has an intense, violent affair with a married man. Her obsession with him clouds the rest of her life. Often raw and real, but not as mesmerizing as I expected.
