Journal Entry 1 by Barleygrow from Macclesfield, Cheshire United Kingdom on Thursday, July 12, 2018

5 out of 10

This seemed an odd choice for the library to send to our bookclub. I'm sure I missed the point of many of the stories because they aren't in our range of fairy-tales or folk-lore.
Not my cup of tea, but I found some of the stories touching, or funny.
It'll be interesting to hear what the others made of it.

"In Daydreams of Angels, O'Neill's first collection of short stories, she gives free reign to her imaginative gifts. In "The Ugly Ducklings," generations of Nureyev clones live out their lives in a grand Soviet experiment. In "Dear Piglet," a teenaged cult follower writes a letter to explain the motivation behind her crime. And in another tale, a grandmother reveals where babies come from: the beach, where young mothers-to-be hunt for infants in the surf."
