This book was my first encounter with the literature of surrealism and overall it was a pleasant experience Carrington clearly possessed a very special mind and an extraordinary imagination her ability to create the most uncanny bizarre worlds and exist at the intersection of fantasy and reality is mirrored both in her prose and her own life The short stories in this book are eually whimsical and deeply unsettling supplying the reader with constant doses of horror and confusion While reading I instantly felt caught up in a hazy dream like state of mind where weird and inexplicable things happen but are somehow considered normal where terrifying and unpredictable plot makes me both paralyzed and curious to see what happens next When I lifted my eyes from the book I suddenly saw my own reality through Carrington s surreal lens and rejoiced in the almost addictive feeling that nothing makes sense That being said in my opinion Leonora Carrington was a better painter than she was a writer I kept getting distracted by her simplistic literary style which underpinned the plot in some passages but jeopardized the artistic effect in others Also I was initially enchanted with her choice of descriptive vocabulary and ability to create very vivid juicy images but her motives soon got compulsively repetitive most of the stories featured similar patterns of horses anthropomorphic animals and human animal hybrid creatures preoccupation with one s own beauty perverse portrayals of decadent food combinations and dining rituals or gothic horror houses This made me think that rather than some genius creativity it may have been Carrington s own obsessions and insanity that motivated her art I therefore suggest that the best way to read this book is to resist one s insatiable hunger for bewilderment and proceed in small portions one short story at a time so that the magic does not get lost in a surge of unvarying impressions
