Books Info:

The Apple free pdf Take a saunter down Silver Street once more for an early Christmas encounter with the determined heroine of The Crimson Petal and the White, and find out more of what became of her. In this collection, Michel Faber revisits the world of his bestselling novel, briefly opening doors onto the lives of its characters to give us tantalising glimpses of where they sprang from and what happened to them. All of us can vividly remember The Crimson Petal and the White, Michel Faber's compelling historical novel released in 2002. In it we came to know Sugar, the alluring nineteen-year-old in Mrs Castaway's brothel, and followed her rise through 1870s London society. The Crimson Petal was not only a wonderful story - it created an entire, extraordinary world. Now, with the wonderful new stories in The Apple, Michel Faber has opened the door once again onto that world, and takes us into the lives of the characters we came to love.
