The Debutante and Other Stories
20cm x 13cm. [vi], 156 pages. Lettered french fold wrappers.
With an Introduction by Sheila Heti and an Afterword by Marina Warner. “A debutante frees a hyena from the zoo so that it might take her place at her coming-out ball; an artist paints a portrait of a mans dead wife, but finds she has painted herself instead; a psychoanalyst must decide what to do with the gift of a team of Russian rats trained to operate on humans. In this first complete edition of Leonora Carringtons short stories, written throughout her life from her early years in Surrealist Paris to her late period in Dirty War-era Mexico City, the world is by turns subversive, funny, sly, wise and disarming.” (publisher’s blurb)
