"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

I liked the whole ensemble put forward between the story and the presentation thereof, nothing seemed to bring it down.
I don't really know a book to compare it to.
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.
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.
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.
