Eight ghost stories by well known 19th century’ authors (the Irish Le Fanu and Wilde, the French Guy De Maupassant, the English Jerome, the Spanish Bécquer, the Americans Howard and Allan Poe and the Chinese Ki-Tong) abridged and re-written by Serenella Quarello. In most of the tales the dramatic and creepy narration is combined with irony and comedy, because laughter is one of the best ways to drive off fear, and because every dramatic and creepy situation bears in itself the seeds of the grotesque. A spot-on project by two talented siblings: the illustrations, in fact, are by Maurizio Quarello whose tough and incisive drawing is perfectly in line with the brooding and at the same time ironic atmosphere of these tales.
