The Devil's TreasureeBook - 2012
The Devil's Treasure" is a tale of a young girl visiting Hell from acclaimed writer Mary Gaitskill's novel-in-progress, The Mare. "Now Ginger was not Ginger. She was starved hurting limbs. She was a dried sore mouth and eyes. She was a straining heart. She was legs that stumbled as they were pulled forward by the mass of driven bodies."In his editor's note, founding editor of Electric Liteature Andy Hunter compares his two favorite authors of short stories: "Like Flannery O'Connor, Ms. Gaitskill has an unsparing intuition for people's weaknesses and motives, and she creates exquisitely drawn characters living in a ragged world where things matter." --Provided by publisher.
