In this graphic novel, a spinster escapes the demands of life through a sexual relationship with a haunted mirror. A vision-impaired, Victorian spinster in need of primitive cataract surgery has little time for herself between needing to take care of her demanding, invalid sister-in-law, and investigating her brother’s mysterious nighttime activities. To escape it all, she engages in a sexual relationship with a haunted mirror in her bedroom. Gfrörer’s delicate and dark line-work perfectly complements the period era of the book’s setting, bringing the lyricism and romanticism of her stories to the fore. Black & white illustrations.
