The Ladies of Grace Adieu and Other Stories

By Susanna Clarke

Rating: 4 stars

This is a collection of short stories about magic, set in the same universe as Clarke’s novel Jonathan Strange and Mr Norell. The stories are all enjoyable, and mostly structured like traditional fairy stories, inclusive of the sense of the sinister that fairy stories traditional were very good at. The title story brought this out particularly well.

One for established Clarke fans and people wanted a way into her work without starting with the 1000+ page Jonathan Strange.
