Tender Morsels

Bookseller Recommendation

If you enjoyed Uprooted, then you’ll love Tender Morsels.

“If you enjoyed Naomi Novik's brilliant reinterpretation of classic fairytale tropes, Margo Lanagan's Tender Morsels is a fantastic next read. Set in a land that will feel instantly familiar to fans of the brothers Grimm, this very adult fairytale looks at the consequences of a culture that insists on female subservience. It's one of my favorite books, and one that hasn't gotten nearly the attention it deserves. Do yourself a favor and give it a listen!”

Description

Liga lives modestly in her own personal heaven, given to her by natural magic in exchange for her earthly life. Her two daughters, gentle Branza and curious Urdda, grow up in this soft world, protected from the violence, predation, and village prejudice that once harmed their mother. But the real world cannot be denied forever—magicked men and wild bears break down the borders of Liga’s refuge. Now, having known heaven, how will these three women survive in a world where beauty and brutality lie side by side? This is a tale of journeys and transformations. From girl to witch to woman. From boy to beast to man. From hell to heaven to . . . reality. Building her tale on a mythic scaffolding, Margo Lanagan asks timeless questions about what it is to be human. She explores the evil and the sweetness in the world and reveals the essential magic of learning to live with both. Chosen as a 2009 Michael L. Printz honor book
