Well, I have confirmed for myself that Vanessa de Sade is quite a writer. The first stories of hers I read were from Tales of a Tangled Bush. After reading “The Big Cat Circus” I thought, “Wow, this lady can write!” Now I’m reading Melancholia Falls and I’m impressed. I get such a strong feeling of place from both of these works. She built such an eerie atmosphere into these two works that I felt intrigued from page one. Vanessa de Sade is so good with making a place live and feeling edgy that I think she’d make a good horror writer, but I hope she sticks to erotica—or maybe combine the two? Highly recommend this book.
