Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

A scathing 1978 New York Times review by Anatole Broyard was enough, according to Fairy Tale Review editor Kate Bernheimer, to knock this second novel by 2001 Pulitzer finalist (for The Quick and the Dead) and 1974 NBA finalist (for State of Grace) Williams quickly out of print. This 30th anniversary edition aims to redress the book's poor initial reception. A preface by Rick Moody prepares readers for a folklore-tinged look at the lucky and unlucky fortunes of a drink afflicted young woman called Pearl. The book casts its spell immediately, opening on a not so bad bar where Pearl sits drinking gin and tonics, an infant in the crook of her right arm. (Apr.)

The Changeling: Eeriie suspense June 10 2012
By English Major - Published on
Format: Paperback
Have this from the library, really need to buy it. Keep wanting to make notes and underline... just finished it last night and going back to re-read portions. I don't know how she knows all this but it is really amazing. Yes, it is a fairytale, but it seems to give information about things I always suspected were true, and never wanted to bring up.
