Daydreams Of Angels
Heather O'Neill's distinctive style and voice fill these charming, sometimes dark, always beguiling stories.
From "The Robot Baby," in which we discover what happens when a robot feels emotion for the very first time, to "Heaven," about a grandfather who died for a few minutes when he was nine and visited the pearly gates, to "The Little Wolf-Boy of Northern Quebec," in which untamed children run wild through the streets of Paris, to "Dolls," in which a little girl's forgotten dolls tell their own stories of woe and neglect, we are immersed in utterly unique worlds. Also included in the collection is "The End of Pinky," which has been made into short film by the NFB.
With this collection, Heather O'Neill showcases her diversity and skill as a writer and draws us in with each page.
