Nota del redattore

A wickedly good Gothic tale…

A wickedly good Gothic tale about a haunted school for girls. In the first adult novel from “The Miseducation of Cameron Post” author Emily M. Danforth, a spellbinding story within a story within a story(!) unfolds around a curse. This wildly imaginative horror-comedy delights in celebrating the queer and defiant young women it depicts.

Descrizione

_________________________________________________________________

‘It’s a terrible story and one way to tell it is this: two girls in love and a fog of wasps cursed the place forever after…’

BROOKHANTS SCHOOL FOR GIRLS: Infamous site of a series of tragic deaths over a hundred years ago. Soon to be the subject of a controversial horror movie about the rumoured ‘Brookhants curse’:

In the early 1900’s, Brookhants students Flo and Clara fell madly in love, brought together by their obsession for a scandalous memoir.

A few months later they were found dead in the woods, after a horrific wasp attack, the book lying next to their intertwined bodies.

Three more grisly deaths followed before the school was forced to close.

Now, the school’s doors are open once more. But as the crew of glamorous young actresses assemble to start filming, past and present begin to blur. And soon it’s impossible to tell quite where the curse ends and Hollywood begins…
