To Sink One’s Teeth Into: Five Cannibal Books via Tor.Com
Today is the eve of Good Friday, presaging Easter and the finish of Lent and fasting. So what better reading for preparation for one’s return to a full menu but “Five Stories About Cannibalism” by Karin Tidbeck, courtesy of this Thursday’s TOR.COM? Not only that, as Karin explains: “I picked the titles below for a range of cooking methods, reasons for cooking, and the ways in which the author deals with the subject. Bon appétit.”
So for a holiday treat, going back to the Brothers Grimm and even including Thomas Preskett Prest’s “The String of Pearls,” the penny dreadful that marked the debut of one Sweeny Todd, be pleased to peruse here.
