Afternoon Bites: Monique Roffey, AUM Fidelity, “robot art,” and more

“Not all of the source material will be familiar to readers, and not every writer knows how to manage this experiment. Many American readers will be unfamiliar with the witch prototype of Baba Iaga (best handled in Joy Williams’ “Baba Iaga and the Pelican Child,” in which the ornithologist John James Audubon cuts a frightening figure). And it is unlikely that everyone will recognize the eerily macabre yet luminous lesser-known stories of the Brothers Grimm.” Jessica Freeman-Slade looks at the anthology My Mother She Killed Me, My Father He Ate Me: Forty New Fairy Tales at the Los Angeles Review of Books.
