Shadows on the Wall: Dark Tales by Mary E. Wilkins Freeman | Mike Ashley (Ed)
The disquieting tales of Mary E. Wilkins Freeman explore a world of contrast, where the supernatural erupts out of authentically drawn portraits of New England life. This is a world of witchcraft, secrecy, domestic spaces turned uncanny and ancestral vengeances inflicted upon the unfortunates of the present. Collecting the best of the author's strange tales - including 'the White Shawl', which was unpublished during her lifetime - this volume casts a light on an underappreciated contributor to weird fiction and the shadowy corners of a dark imagination. Another brilliant addition to the British Library's 'Tales of the Weird' series.
