display_description "First published in 1998 ... and now reissued with the addition of a prefatory essay, Black Glass showcases the ... talents of this prizewinning author. In fifteen ... tales, Fowler lets her wit and vision roam freely, turning accepted norms inside out and fairy tales upside down--pushing us to reconsider our unquestioned verities and proving once again that she is among our most subversive writers"--Dust jacket flap.
