Bluebeard's Castle by Anna Biller

Staff Pick

Biller's debut puts a new spin on the old tale of Bluebeard by following the story of Judith, a romance novelist who has always been overshadowed by her more beautiful sister--until, that is, she attracts the attention of handsome playboy Gavin and jumps into a whirlwind marriage. Blinded by her devotion, she misses the clues that Gavin has a dark side, and her fairytale romance turns as quickly into a horror story. As Judith spirals into madness, Biller’s lush and dramatic writing style heightens not only the tension but also the hilarity, revealing this as a tongue-in-cheek Gothic that reminds us how love can bring out the monsters inside.
