Troubled Daughters, Twisted Wives: Stories from the Trailblazers of Domestic Suspense - Sarah Weinman

Between the pulp fiction-y covers lie a compendium of stories written by the grand dames of the suspense and crime genre, from 1940 to 1976. The stories, written by women, and about women, are as dark and insidious as thunder storms in summer, and as thrilling. The contrast between the womanly subject matter and the shadowy events that transpire, is sharpened by the bleached, socially constructed concept of femininity, leading to even darker conclusions than one may expect. At once, these tales are indispensable and unforgettable, and during the short time it took me to devour this anthology, the delicious tales infiltrated my dreams. This is an essential and basic addition to any suspense lover’s library.
