Reviews

A collection of wild works by wild women is the perfect tribute to Virago's impact and legacy
Tortoise Media
[Furies addresses] the full panoply of 'isms' such as racism, ageism, heroism, terrorism, and classism, all congregated under feminism
Irish Examiner
Definitely where power and feminist rage meet
Stylist
Delightful and thought-provoking
Perspective
Spell-binding . . . these vivid works of imagination are further proof that, back in 1973, Virago's founder Carmen Calil was on to something
Kiran Duggal, Harper's Bazaar
A collection of dazzling stories, as inventive as they are inspiring
Daily Mirror
A slick collection of clever tales, with something for bluestockings and banshees alike
Observer
Some are historical, some are infused with the mystical and magical, some have threads of fierce commentary and some are laugh-out-loud funny. All of them fizz with energy, meaning and page-turner plots
