Foxfire, Wolfskin and Other Stories of Shape-Shifting Women
Foxfire, Wolfskin and Other Stories of Shape-Shifting Women | Sharon Blackie
3 posts | 2 read | 7 to read
From an established writer of empowering literature comes a first fictional collection - of transformational power. Drawing on N. European folklore rather than Greek myth or male-interpreted fairy tales, these are the original feminist voices. Sharing revenge and rebirth, capturing love and shaking off the past, changing the elements and shedding skins, they are heroines all. Each shapeshifting woman has an extraordinary story of change and survival to tell, and each story is born out of a regional folk tale, from Iceland to Ireland, Scotland to Scandanavia, Croatia to Cornwall.

A glorious collection of retelling and re-imaginings centering female characters and frequently challenging the traditional female fairy tale experience. Particular favourites for me: The Last Man Standing, The Bogman's Wife, Meeting Baba Yaga and No Country For Old Women

This is a collection of short stories with a theme of strong women, all based on myths and legends from countries around the world.

But, it‘s not that simple…..there is magic, heartbreak, love, fear and power. It is beautifully written and really touches a nerve at times and will make you laugh and cry.
