Publisher's Summary

"I left her when she was eight. Just a child. Too young to be alone. I killed myself because I could never atone for the things he made me do. There is something wrong with my family, you see. A fear runs through us, through our blood. A fear that circles above us, shredding the sky and clawing at our hearts, and now, from a deathless realm, I am forced to watch as my lonely daughter is tortured by the life I gave her to endure. No father should see the things I've seen, but then no father should do the things I did. Forgive me, Angela."
Angela, a bleak and unflinching gothic horror in which we meet a lonely, middle-aged woman who must live with the legacy of her family's dark secret, the madness that grows in the absence of love, and a closet full of delicate skeletons.

Grotesque and beautiful

If you ignore the modern references to email and the like, one could easily mistake this story for a 19th century British classic … it's poetic, lyrical, dark and shadowy, yet filled with tiny moments of brilliant light and hope, only to be snuffed out again. Honestly, it's hard to do it justice in words, the prose is just so finely crafted and the narration by Rob Goll so intimate, I was sure it must be narrated by the author himself. One you will not soon forget, that's for certain! Worthy of a listen.

Creepy

What did you love best about Angela?

I liked the whole ensemble put forward between the story and the presentation thereof, nothing seemed to bring it down.


What other book might you compare Angela to and why?

I don't really know a book to compare it to.


Which character – as performed by Rob Goll – was your favorite?

I liked his portrayal of Angela and all the things that went through her head as she did what she did, it was a powerful combination.


If you could take any character from Angela out to dinner, who would it be and why?

I wouldn't, in general, because I don't think I'd like to know them personally but if I had to pick it'd be Angela because I'd like to hear her thoughts moreso than any others.


Any additional comments?

I got this in exchange for an honest review and recommend it to anyone looking for a short weird story with great author craftsmanship and a worthy performance.
