The Rental Heart and Other Fairytales free pdf Winner of the Scott Prize Winner of the 2015 Polari First Book Prize Winner of the Saboteur Award for Best Short Story Collection The Herald: Book of the Year 2014 Shortlisted for the 2014 Green Carnation Prize Twenty tales of lust and loss. These stories feature clockwork hearts, lascivious queens, paper men, island circuses, and a flooded world. On the island of Skye, an antlered girl and a tiger-tailed boy resolve never to be friends - but can they resist their unique connection? In an alternative 19th-century Paris, a love triangle emerges between a man, a woman, and a coin-operated boy. A teenager deals with his sister's death by escaping from their tiny Scottish island - but will she let him leave? In 1920s New Orleans, a young girl comes of age in her mother's brothel. Some of these stories are radical retellings of classic tales, some are modern-day fables, but all explore substitutions for love.
