Susanna Clarke returns with an enchanting collection brimming with all the ingredients of good fairy tales: petulant princesses, vengeful owls, ladies who pass their time by embroidering terrible fates; endless paths in the deep, dark woods; and houses that never appear the same way twice. The heroines and heroes who must grapple with these problems include the Duke of Wellington; a conceited Regency clergyman; an 18th-century Jewish doctor; and Mary, Queen of Scots; as well as Jonathan Strange and the Raven King.

The Ladies of Grace Adieu and Other Stories introduces readers to a world where charm is always tempered by eeriness, and picaresque comedy is always darkened by the disturbing shadow of magic.

    " Nice stories and as I read them while proctoring my midterms having several small independent
    stories in nice little hour segments was very convenient. I didn't think the story about
    Wellington and his horse was weak, only short - then again I like the Duke so I may be
    biased. "

    " Fun and whimsical. I would give it 3 and a half stars if that were an option. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Judith | 4/14/2011

    " A book of strange fairytales. Some I liked, some I didn't so much. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Peter | 4/6/2011

    " A short, enjoyable collection of fairy tales (in some cases literally about fairies), writing in an early 19th century style. The tales themselves are very fresh and lively. "
