Magic For Unlucky Girls by A. A. Balaskovits

The fourteen fantastical stories in Magic For Unlucky Girls take the familiar fairytale tropes we know well and turn them upside down. These unlucky girls, struggling with a society all too often against them, are forced to navigate strange worlds as they try to survive…or fall to pieces.

From carnivorous husbands to a bath of lemons to whirling basements that drive them mad, these stories are about the demons that lurk in all of our souls, and the women who must fight against them, sometimes with their wit, sometimes with their beauty, and sometimes with shotguns in the dead of night.

“…That rarest of things: A book that doesn’t remind me of anything else I’ve read…A wonderful, truly original work.”
— Emily St. John Mandel, author of Station Eleven
