Surreal, ambitious, and exquisitely conceived, The Doll’s Alphabet is a collection of stories in the tradition of Angela Carter and Margaret Atwood. Dolls, sewing machines, tinned foods, mirrors, malfunctioning bodies many images recur in stories that are in turn child-like and naive, grotesque and very dark. In “Unstitching”, a feminist revolution takes place. In “Waxy”, a factory worker fights to keep hold of her Man in a society where it is frowned upon to be Manless. In “Agata’s Machine”, two schoolgirls conjure a Pierrot and an angel in a dank attic room. In “Notes from a Spider”, a half-man, half-spider finds love in a great European city. By constantly reinventing ways to engage with her obsessions and motifs, Camilla Grudova has come up with a method for storytelling that is highly imaginative, incredibly original, and absolutely discomfiting.
