Overview

Expanded 30th-anniversary edition of Patricia Eakins's critically acclaimed collection of short stories, "a modern bestiary which reworks the stuff of mythologies, spanning the cultures of the planet."

In addition to the 13 short fictions collected in the original 1989 edition of this book, this new edition includes the story "Black Food," never before published in the United States.

This edition also includes the transcript of Françoise Palleau-Papin's 1998 interview with the author, "A Conversation with Patricia Eakins," as well as "Here Be Dragons," John Richards's new interview with Jeffrey Miller of Cadmus Editions, the original publisher of The Hungry Girls. Additionally, there are two short pieces about the 1997 Collision Theory theatrical production of The Hungry Girls: A Fairy Tale from Stephanie Gilman (co-producer and director) and Kristin Tanzer (co-producer and choreographer), and a piece from artist Moira Bateman about her Hungry Girls nightdresses, mixed media fiber sculptures inspired by Eakins's story.

The cover features the brilliant work of renowned artist Brenda Goodman ("Self Portrait 13," 48x40, oil on wood, 1994).
